Tamilkumaran, the head of Lyca Productions, recently announced that the banner will be producing two films with Rajinikanth. The puja ceremony for both projects will be held in Chennai on 5 November.

Lyca Productions Chairman Subaskaran A, and Premsivasamy, the deputy chairman of the banner, were also present when the announcement was made alongside the superstar.

Following this, legions of Rajini’s fans are all excited and eagerly waiting to watch their favourite star scorch the big screen yet again.

Aakasam trailer raises expectations

The trailer of Ashok Selvan’s forthcoming flick, Aakasam, suggests that it is a feel-good romantic drama.

Ashok Selvan is one of the most bankable actors down South. Unfortunately, he’s underrated.

He is now on his way to dazzle both Telugu and Tamil audiences with his upcoming bilingual Aakasam-Nitham Oru Vaanam.

Ritu Varma, Aparna Balamurali and Shivathmika are playing the female leads.

The makers recently unveiled its teaser which was well-received by the audience. The team has now come up with a mesmerising trailer that offers a glimpse into the film’s storyline.

Natural Star Nani launched the Telugu trailer on Twitter and wished the entire team the best.

The movie revolves around the life of Ashok Selvan’s character in three different periods. Thus, the actor will be seen sporting three different appearances in the project.

How the protagonist handles a roller-coaster ride of love, betrayal and other emotions forms the crux of the movie. It’s releasing in theatres on 4 November.
