There are many speculations about Rajinikanth's next movie after Lingaa. A few days ago, reports were doing rounds about the possibility of Rajinikanth's inclusion in director Shankar's next movie which is said to be a sequel to his 2010 blockbuster Enthiran. Now according to some sources, Rajinikanth's next movie might be a remake of a 1972 Kannada film Bangaarada Manushya which had yesteryear Kannada Superstar late Dr. RajKumar.
We all know that the Tamil Superstar was once working as a bus
conductor in Bangalore. In his early days as a conductor,
Rajinikanth, it seems was watching a lot of Kannada movies. One
such movie that allegedly impressed Rajinikanth a lot was Dr.
RajKumar's Bangaarada Manushya. Rajinikanth had then
dreamt of essaying Dr. RajKumar's role and is all set to turn his
wish into a reality, according to sources.
According to Rajinikanth's bosom friend Raj Bahadur, the film
was supposed to go on floors before Lingaa but since
the Superstar had given his dates to act in Lingaa he
couldn't start his alleged dream project. It is also being said
that K.S. Ravikumar, who is currently directing Lingaa
will direct this remake film as well.
A lot of news about Rajinikanth's upcoming movies have come out in the past including a film based on his friendship with Raj Bahadur. But none of those claims have taken shape till now. Is the latest news about the South Indian Superstar one such claim? Or is this more than just a rumour given the Enthiran actor's connection with Bangalore and his love for Kannada movies? Well, the exact answer to such questions remain a mystery as of now. But one could also say that it is very unlikely for Rajinikanth to remake a 1972 classic given his star value at present.
