Atlee, who is currently basking on the super success of his last release, ‘Jawan‘ with Shah Rukh Khan, recently opened up about his plans to work with Thalaiva aka Rajinikanth himself.
In a recent interview with Gopinath, Atlee revealed that he wants to direct Rajinikanth and will be surely doing so. He said that he is a die-hard fan of Rajinikanth. He has learnt a lot of things watching him speak in public.The filmmaker, who had worked with him for 300 days in Enthiran, shared that the megastar used to call him ‘Kanna’. They worked twice on some content but due to time constraints, it didn’t materialise. He couldn’t do it because of the time factor.

Elaborating further, Atlee added that the pressure of wanting to do something better than Baasha has stopped him from working with him yet. He added that trade-wise, whoever he has directed be it Arya or Vijay, his film has become the peak for the heroes. So he wishes to do a film that becomes the peak for Rajinikanth. Atlee also went on to reveal that he has tried it a couple of times, but it didn’t work but Rajinikanth is always ready. He has told the director multiple times. Atlee concluded by saying that a film with Rajini sir is definitely on cards and that it is just a matter of time.

What! Before Nayanthara, ‘Jawan’s director Atlee approached Samantha Ruth Prabhu to play the female lead in the movie?

In the same interview, Atlee also revealed that both Shah Rukh Khan and Vijay discussed between themselves and called him to tell him that if he ever plans to direct a dual hero film, they both are ready for it. The filmmaker said that he is working on it and that it could be his next film.

‘Jawan’ also starred Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in lead roles. Sanya Malhotra, Ridhi Dogra, Priyamani and others also played a pivotal role in the movie. The film made some record-breaking collections at the box office.
