Rajinikanth ‘Thumping With Joy’ To Collaborate With Big B After 33 Years
CHENNAI, (IANS) – Thalaivar Rajinikanth, who is currently scheduled for his new project tentatively titled ‘Thalaivar 170’, is “thumping with joy”, as he is marking his latest collaboration with his “mentor”, the Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan after 33 years.
The ‘Jailer’ actor shared a picture of the two acting behemoths standing alongside one another.
Prior to the upcoming film, Big B and Thalaivar last worked together in the Hindi film ‘Hum’, directed by Mukul Anand which was released in 1991. ‘Hum’ was a massive rage in the 1990s and a huge success, receiving great acclaim from critics, and viewers, as well as a big box office.
The movie, which starred Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Govinda, Anupam Kher, Kimi Katkar, Deepa Sahi, Shilpa Shirodkar, Danny Denzongpa, and Kader Khan in pivotal roles, also led to the Thalaivar’s 1995 classic ‘Baasha’, as it employed several unused plot points from the original script of ‘Hum’.
‘Hum’ is also very well remembered for its song ‘Jumma Chumma De De’. ‘Baasha’ is also well known for two of its classic tracks ‘Naan Autokaaran’, and ‘Style Style Thaan’.
Since the announcement of the new mystery project, immense excitement is raging across India as audiences from Mumbai to Chennai are frantic to see the two legends come together on the big screen.
Apart from these two legends, the film will also star Fahadh Faasil, Rana Daggubati, Manju Warrier, Ritika Singh and Dushara Vijayan. With music by Anirudh Ravichander, the film will hit theatres in 2024.
