Superstar Rajinikanth's new movie 'Thalaivar 169' is in hectic preproduction mode in order to go on floors in early August this year. The film produced by Sun Pictures is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar with music by Anirudh Ravichander.

We broke the news first to you that Sivakarthikeyan the fastest rising star in Kollywood will be a part of 'Thalaivar 169' as a lyricist as well as actor. The hot buzz now is that there is a powerful flashback portion in the film and Sivakarthikeyan will be portraying the younger version of the hero Rajinikanth in the film.

Usually in flashback portions so far including 'Kabali' and 'Petta' recently it was Rajini himself who has played his younger version. It will be interesting to see another actor play him that too someone who can mimic him to perfection.

If this turns out to be the case then Siva a hardcore fan of Thalaivar will be not only be playing a pivotal role in his idol's film but will be playing the legend himself. Lets stay tuned for the official update.

As far as the casting of 'Thalaivar 169' is concerned it is said that Rajini, Shivarajkumar, Priyanka Arul Mohan, Ramya Krishnan, Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley and Sivakarthikeyan are said to be confirmed. The official announcement may come in the second week of July according to some sources.
