Chennai: Even as Superstar’s fans eagerly await the release of his magnum opus Kochadaiiyaan this week, the shooting of his next film Lingaa is going on at a brisk pace in Hyderabad.
The latest we hear is that Nayanthara, who acted opposite Rajinikanth earlier, in the blockbuster Chandramukhi, has been roped in by the makers for an item number in the film. Interestingly, this will be the first item number that the actress will perform, post her much-hyped comeback last year.
According to sources close to the unit, the only reason that Nayan gave the nod for the item number was “because it was Superstar’s film.”
Meanwhile, we also hear that Santhanam, who is currently elated with the success of his recently released flick, Vallavanukku Pullum Aayutham, will be joining the sets of Lingaa soon. “Feeling proud to be in Lingaa”, he tweeted.
Vadivelu may also share screen space with Rajinikanth, after a long time. He had earlier been part of Chandramukhi and Kuselan, which also starred Superstar.
