Karthi, who worked with Ranjith in Madras, feels that he is the perfect man to direct Superstar Rajinikanth. “When Ranjith called and told me that he will be directing our Superstar next, I was really happy for him. Being an ardent fan, I have always wanted to see Thalaivar in a different shade and I am confident Ranjith is the right person for Thalaivar,” says Karthi.
Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, the pre-production for Rajinikanth 159 is under way. The shooting will kick-start from August first week and a formal pooja will be held this month.
