    Superstar Rajinikanth is gearing up to take part in his career's biggest film, under the direction of maverick filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj. Referred to as Thalaivar 171, the movie is expected to shatter the veteran's records including the recent mammoth blockbuster Jailer, written and directed by Nelson.

    After the buzz around Jailer settled, Thalapathy Vijay's Leo picked pace and is now the biggest phenomenon in South India. The movie is hitting the screens on October 19 worldwide.

    Coming back to Thalaivar 171, post the success of Jailer, Rajinikanth signed two films- one with Jai Bhim director TG Gnanavel, referred to as Thalaivar 170. There are high expectations for this film as well.

    Thalaivar 171 was in the headlines recently for rumours about writer-director Lokesh Kanagaraj's exit. However, putting an end to the news about Thalaivar 171, the Sun Pictures banner helmed by Kalanithi Maran officially announced the launch of the project on September 11.

    This time again, the wonderful trio of Rajinikanth, Lokesh Kanagaraj, and the sensational Anirudh Ravichander are collaborating for yet another epic fan fest, going by the launch poster of the film. Lokesh will be coming together with his staple crew like Anirudh for music and Anbariv for action choreography. Fans couldn't wait for this film to go on the sets shortly.

    Contrary to Lokesh's other films which have a direct or indirect connection with his earlier films that fall under Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU), Thalaivar 171 with Rajinikanth will be a standalone film and will not have references to any of his past or future films, reportedly. The other details about the remaining cast and crew of Thalaivar 171 will be announced once the pre-production works kick-start.

    Lokesh Kanagaraj is also said to have hinted at quitting directing films after his project with pan-India star Prabhas.
