When was the last time two films of the superstar released in the same year? Can’t think of any? Well, that’s because this hasn’t happened in over a decade! But this year, is certainly an exception. This is a special year for all Rajini fans. If early 2014 gave us an animated motion-capture avatar of the ‘Thalaivar’, the second-half of the year will give us Lingaa. Rajinikanth’s latest project, directed by ace filmmaker K.S.Ravikumar, is all set to release in December.
The pre-release buzz around the film is creating a terrific news. On the occasion of Vinayaka Chaturthi, the first-look and motion-poster were released online. Set on a deserted land, with a Temple in its backdrop, Rajinikanth is seen kicking-up a whirlwind. Clad in a white tee, a leather jacket, paired with dark ripped-jeans, the actor’s look complemented the sepia tone in the poster.
The film marks the debut of Bollywood beauty, Sonakshi Sinha
, and also stars Southern Siren Anuskha Shetty
. The cast also includes Santhanam, Jagapathi Babu, Dev Gill, Karunakaran, Radha Ravi and Vijaya Kumar. Oscar award-winner, A.R.Rahman
has composed the music of the film. R.Rathnavel
handles the camera. The film has been produced by Rockline movies.
Going by the massive number of views on the motion-poster, it sure looks like K.S.Ravikumar is here to present a successive commercial movie, for all Rajini fans. The first-look of the film also received a huge response from popular celebrities. Take a look at few celebrities, who couldn’t contain their excitement after they saw their idol, Rajinikanth
