After the super success of Kabali, Superstar Rajinikanth and Pa Ranjith are once again working for a new movie that also shows Rajini as mafia don. Although the movie is not sequel to Kabali, Rajinikanth’s fans are referring it as Kabali 2. This will be Rajinikanth’s 161st movie in his career.
The film is produced by Rajini’s son-in-law Dhanush. Buzz is that the untitled film might be launched on 1st May and the title and first look will also be unveiled next month. Reports suggest that the film is based on the underworld don Sultan Mirza. It will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages. The film is set in the backdrop of Mumbai and it will mostly be shot in Mumbai and Chennai.
If Kabali was based on Tamil people’s plight in Malaysia which was attributed as a real story of many Tamil-Malaysian citizens, then the upcoming venture of Rajini-Ranjith Combo too, is rumoured to be based on a real life character. The yet to be untitled 161st movie of Thalaivar is said to be based on Mirza Haji Mastan.
The description attached to Haji Mastan makes one feel that none other than Superstar Rajinikanth could reprise his role on screen. Haji Mastan was said to be clad with white clothing sporting white shoes, flaunting his Mercedes Benz and smoking expensive cigarettes thereby making him a style icon altogether.
