Raghava Lawrence, a self-proclaimed fan of superstar Rajnikanth, has openly expressed his love and admiration for Rajni on multiple occasions. While Rajni starred in ‘Chandramukhi’ in 2005, Lawrence took on the lead role in the recently released ‘Chandramukhi 2.’ Despite never sharing the screen together, there are strong indications that Lokesh Kanagaraj is about to make this dream pairing a reality.
Unofficial reports suggest that Lawrence is expected to play the antagonist’s role in Rajni’s upcoming film with the director of ‘Leo.’ Though yet to be officially confirmed, sources in Chennai strongly believe it could happen. Lawrence is currently awaiting the release of ‘Jigarthanda Double X’ on November 10, while Rajni is busy working on a project with Gnanavel.
The recent official announcement revealed that three talented actresses, Manju Warrier, Rithika Singh, and Dushara Vijayan, will play significant roles in the movie. Additionally, Telugu actor Rana Daggubati, known for selecting impactful roles in major films, is also part of the project. Lokesh’s reputation for crafting intriguing characters has set high expectations for Rajni’s film.
Lokesh’s recent film ‘Leo’ received mixed reviews, but the immense popularity of Vijay contributed to its significant success in Tamil Nadu. With Lokesh’s connection to ‘Leo’ and its potential impact on Rajni’s project, there is much anticipation surrounding this collaboration.
