This is not official but the latest buzz in Kollywood is that Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been approached to play the baddie in Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film with director Karthik Subbaraj.
Reports say that Karthik Subbaraj has recently met Nawazuddin Siddiqui and narrated the script when the director was in Mumbai for promoting his upcoming silent thriller film ‘Mercury’. To be produced by Sun Pictures, Anirudh Ravichander has been confirmed to compose music for the film but the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalized.
Karthik had earlier revealed that his film with Rajinikanth will be realistic but it will also have all the elements one would expect in a Thalaivar film. The director is also said to be in talks with leading actresses to pair opposite Rajinikanth but Karthik wants to make an official announcement only after the release of Mercury.
