Director Lokesh Kanagaraj's much-anticipated collaboration with superstar Rajinikanth for their upcoming film, tentatively titled Thalaivar 171, has been making waves since its announcement last year. As the project gears up to commence shooting soon, exciting updates are emerging, including the potential inclusion of actors Shruti Haasan and Sathyaraj in the star-studded cast.

While there hasn't been an official confirmation yet, the prospect of Shruti Haasan sharing the screen with the legendary Rajinikanth for the first time is generating considerable excitement among fans. Notably, Shruti recently starred in the music video "Inimel," which also featured Lokesh Kanagaraj in a leading role.

The official promo video for Thalaivar 171 is slated to be unveiled on April 22, promising to reveal the film's title and offer further insights into the highly anticipated project. This promotional strategy aligns with Lokesh Kanagaraj's previous endeavors, such as "Vikram" and "Leo," which saw similar promotional tactics with leading stars like Kamal Haasan and Thalapathy Vijay, respectively.

Amidst the buzz surrounding the film, rumors have been circulating about a potential cameo appearance by Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, adding another layer of intrigue to the project.

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth is gearing up to grace the silver screen with his upcoming film "Vettaiyan," directed by TJ Gnanavel of "Jai Bhim" fame. The action-packed thriller follows the journey of an ex-police officer unraveling a mystery surrounding him. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Fahadh Faasil, Rana Daggubati, and Manju Warrier, among others, "Vettaiyan" is set to hit theaters in October this year. Anirudh Ravichander's musical prowess is expected to elevate the film's cinematic experience.

Actor Fahadh Faasil, who is part of the "Vettaiyan" cast, recently hinted at his character's humorous undertones alongside Rajinikanth during a media interaction, further piquing the audience's curiosity about the film's narrative and character dynamics.
