Produced by A Subaskaran under the respected banner of Lyca Productions, ‘Vettaiyan’ stands out as a milestone, being Rajinikanth’s 170th feature film.

The news came to light after Lyca Productions took to social media to share the completion update.

Superstar @rajinikanth completes filming his portion for Vettaiyan.” Social media has been abuzz since the reveal, with followers of both the superstar and the Tamil cinema industry expressing their excitement and anticipation for the film.

The movie has garnered considerable attention not just for featuring Rajinikanth, but also for uniting him with Hindi cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan, who concluded his shooting for the film earlier this month. The two icons have not shared the silver screen since their collaboration in the 1991 Hindi blockbuster ‘Hum’, directed by Mukul S Anand. With Rajinikanth at 73 and Bachchan at 81, their reunion in ‘Vettaiyan’ after more than three decades is being celebrated as a historical event in Indian cinema.

‘Vettaiyan’ also assembles a stellar cast of renowned actors to support the two legends. The line-up includes the versatile Fahadh Faasil, acclaimed actor Rana Daggubati, and the talented Ritika Singh. Additionally, the film boasts the presence of Manju Warrier and Dushara Vijayan, who are expected to deliver powerful performances, upholding the illustrious narrative that the Tamil film industry is known for.

Before this venture, Rajinikanth was seen gracing the screen with an extended cameo in the sports action film ‘Lal Salaam’. His affiliation with sports-themed cinema seems to bide well with the audience as his character brought significant vigor to the film’s ambiance. Up next, Rajinikanth is set to appear in yet another anticipated project titled ‘Coolie’, which is under the directorial helm of Lokesh Kanagaraj.

Rajinikanth’s longevity in Tamil cinema is nothing short of remarkable. Over the years, his career has been marked by a vengeance against typecasting, embracing a wide range of characters and challenging himself with diverse roles. His ability to still lead films with such enthusiasm and popularity is a testament to his unyielding charisma and the adoration he commands from fans across generations.

Tamil cinema, consistently delivering quality content, has seen exponential growth in its global following, with ‘Vettaiyan’ as its latest offering expected to contribute significantly to its expansion. The film’s progress is closely monitored, and with the shoot wrapped up, the post-production phase is anticipated to begin shortly, setting the stage for a release that is bound to captivate the audience and add to the glory of Indian cinema’s rich tapestry of storytelling and star power.
