Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film tentatively titled Thalaivar 168 went on floors today, with a pooja ceremony in Chennai. Sun Pictures, which is bankrolling the project, shared pictures from the pooja on Twitter.

Written and directed by Siva of Viswasam fame, the film marks the maiden collaboration of the director and Rajinikanth. It was recently announced that Khushbu, Meena and Prakash Raj have joined the cast. National Award winner Keerthy Suresh has been roped in as the female lead.

Meena started her career as a child artiste in films such as Enkeyo Ketta Kural and Anbulla Rajinikanth, also starring Rajinikanth. She last shared screen space with Rajini in Kuselan, which was released in 2008.
