As per media updates, films Thalaivar 170 and Thalaivar 171 will be produced by LYCA Production. Ever since then, there has been ample conjecture around who would be the directors of these two prestigious movies. Now as per latest development, Thalaivar 170 will be directed by Rajinikanth’s daughter, Aishwarya Rajinikanth. 

“After making a successful debut as a director with 3 in 2012 and Vai Raja Vai in 2015, Aishwarya has been toying with multiple ideas for her third directorial. Through the pandemic, she thought of an idea for her father, Rajinikanth. On sharing the thought, the superstar was thrilled to work under the direction of Aishwarya,” disclosed a source close to the development, adding further that the filmmaker then took some time to develop the idea into a screenplay and presented it to Rajinikanth, who was mightily impressed with the vision and plot.

“The Aishwarya Rajinikanth film will be announced on November 5, whereas there is still some time before the banner announces the director of their second film with Superstar. There are at least 3 to 4 top directors of the Tamil Film Industry who are in talks for Thalaivar 171 and the name will be locked by early next year. One of the four is Don fame, Sibi,” the media source revealed.

Thalaivar 170 marks the reunion of Rajinikanth with LYCA after 2.0.
