We had previously reported that Rajinikanth is teaming up with TJ Gnanavel of Jai Bhim fame for his 170th film which is tentatively titled Thalaivar 170. The film went on floors in Kerala earlier this month.

On Wednesday morning, Rajinikanth shared a photo with his film’s co-star Amitabh Bachchan with whom he’s collaborating after 33 years.

The duo had previously shared screen space in Hindi films like Hum, Andhaa Kaanoon and Geraftaar

Amitabh Bachchan took to his blog where he said, “A new project has started today, the one with Rajnikant ji .. and getting together on a professional platform, has been coming in years.” Calling Rajini an “extraordinary human”, the veteran actor added, “His most down-to-earth living and nature, his exceptional talent and his legendary presence among the greats of cinema and not even going into the stratastrophic popularity that he has enjoyed through decades and the love and affection he has had towards my family and me.

The film features an ensemble cast that includes Fahadh Faasil, Rana Daggubati, Manju Warrier, Ritika Singh and Dushara Vijayan. Produced by Lyca Productions, the film will have music by Anirudh.
