Actor Rajinikanth was last seen in the mass action drama Annaatthe which hit the theaters under the direction of Siruthai Siva with actress Nayanthara in the female lead part. The movie was tagged with negative reviews from both critics and audience. Despite that, it had a decent run in the box office. The Padayappa actor has now moved on, and is getting ready for the release of his next venture christened Jailer. Actress Tamannaah Bhatia has depicted the female lead role. Storyteller Nelson Dilipkumar of Beast fame has penned and crafted the movie. The flick which went on floors with a small pooja ceremony in February last year had to be suspended for a brief period due to health issues of actor Rajinikanth. The actor recuperated, and started shooting again.
The shooting for the project was underway in full swing. Now, we have news that the shoot for the venture is completely over. The production house themselves has announced the news on social media. Taking to their official twitter account, the production team shared a few pictures from the final day of shoot and wrote, “It’s a wrap for Jailer! Theater la sandhippom. Jailer from Aug 10.” Here is the tweet made by the production unit.
