Santosh Sivan roped in for Rajinikanth-AR Murugadoss film?
The ace cinematographer's last association with Rajinikanth was in Thalapathi
Santosh Sivan, who recently handled the cinematography of Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, has been reportedly brought on board for Rajinikanth’s next film with AR Murugadoss. An official confirmation is awaited. Notably, Murugadoss and Santosh Sivan have worked together on two films earlier - Thuppakki and Spyder.
The pre-production work for the upcoming yet-to-be-titled project is said to be in process and the film is expected to go on floors after the release of Rajini’s Petta. The film will reportedly be produced by Lyca Productions. If true, this would be the banner's third association with Rajinikanth after Kaala and 2.0.
Santosh is currently directing a Malayalam film featuring Manju Warrier and Kalidas Jayaram in the lead.
