It is seven months now since we have been hearing the news of the Thalaivar 169 that Rajinikanth, Keerthi Suresh, Prakash Raj and director Lokesh were first buzzed. Since then, there has been reports on the movie being shelved, and not shelved! The rumours have come and gone.
As per the latest news and source close to the movie had quoted in the media that Thalaivar 169 is set to be launched in November 2020 and that Raaj Kamal Films International is awaiting the release of the movie.
Now, alongside this, there is a buzz that the superstar Rajinikanth will officially launch his political party Rajini Makkal Mandram also in the movie month of November. However, there is no official announcement in this regard yet. We probably have to wait and watch what the superstar is going to prioritize.
The superstar a couple of years back, had started his Rajini Makkal Mandram and also made it clear that he will launch his political party soon. He stated that he has no intentions of becoming a chief minister, but is set to be a conscience keeper for whoever occupies the post of the chief minister. Fans kept speculating that the launch will happen in May, but with the pandemic, this has been postponed.
A congress member, who is also Rajinikanth’s close friend, Karate Thiagarajan stated that Thalaivar will start his political party in November.
On the movie front, the superstar has completed his next film Annathe, directed by Sirthuthai Siva and is produced by Sun Pictures. The team has announced that the team will resume the work only after the coronavirus subsides.
Thalaivar 169 is produced by Kamal Hassan and will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.
