Superstar Rajinikanth and director Pa Ranjith are set to reunite in just a few weeks for their next project after Kabali, which will be bankrolled by Dhanush. In a Twitter chat with fans, Dhanush has confirmed that the yet-untitled film will begin rolling from May.

While an official announcement regarding the cast and crew is awaited, rumours suggest that Vidya Balan might most likely be paired with the superstar. The film is to be predominantly shot against the backdrop of Mumbai slums, and it is believed that Vidya is interested in the project as it won’t require her to travel.

With the upcoming project likely to be another gangster film, Rajinikanth will reportedly undergo a special makeover. Composer Sean Roldan, who strongly impressed Dhanush and everyone else with his work in Power Paandi, is most likely to be roped in for this project in place of Santhosh Narayanan. The rest of the Kabali technical crew is most likely to be retained as, Ranjith is very comfortable working with them.

The project is expected to be wrapped up in three-four months and the film is likely to see release around Pongal next year. With the highly-anticipated Kabali having received a lukewarm response at the box-office, there is an eager anticipation to know how the new project shapes up.
