Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff, who was last seen playing the baddie in Vijay’s Bigil, is most likely to be seen as the antagonist in Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe.
According to reports, Jackie is being considered for the role. If Jackie comes on board, it will be his reunion with Rajinikanth after three decades. The two had previously worked together in Hindi film Uttar Dakshin. Prakash Raj, who was recently confirmed to be a part of the project, also plays a negative role. However, neither the makers nor Jackie have confirmed whether he’s officially part of the project yet.
Jackie made his Tamil debut with Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s critically-acclaimed Aaranya Kaandam.
Directed by Siva, Annaatthe is tipped to be a rural drama and will feature Rajinikanth as a caring brother. The shoot of Annaatthe is expected to resume from October. The film’s music is by D. Imman. The film was officially launched last December in Chennai in a low-key affair.
