The movie, which the makers say is a tribute to the superstar, brings back the old-school Rajni in a new setting.
Karthik Subbaraj, the film’s director had told Indian media that he always had a dream of making a film with the superstar.
“I had narrated the story to him in 2015 but it had to wait since he went on to do Kaala and then later announced his political entry. I kept thinking my life would remain incomplete if I never got the chance to work with him,” he had told media.
