In an exclusive revelation for Superstar Rajinikanth's ardent followers, DT Next reports that acclaimed directors Mari Selvaraj and Nelson Dilipkumar are set to helm the iconic actor's 172nd and 173rd films, respectively. The projects are poised to bring together the cinematic prowess of Rajinikanth with the creative visions of these two accomplished directors.

The collaboration with Mari Selvaraj, renowned for his work in "Maamannan," will be backed by SS Lalit Kumar of Seven Screen Studios. Following the success of their previous venture, Sun Pictures is set to produce Rajini's film with Nelson Dilipkumar, adding another milestone to their collaboration after "Jailer" last year.

Sources close to the actor reveal that the partnership with Mari Selvaraj materialised after Rajinikanth appreciated the director's work on "Maamannan." The filmmaker presented a compelling one-liner to the actor, leading to the fruition of this cinematic endeavour. Official announcements for both projects are anticipated later this year.

Amidst these upcoming ventures, Rajinikanth remains committed to his 171st film directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. This film, produced by Sun Pictures, boasts the musical talent of Anirudh Ravichander and stunt coordination by the Anbariv duo.

While speculations circulated on social media about a potential collaboration with Atlee, industry insiders hint at the prospect of Rajinikanth joining forces with filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj once again. As the Superstar's cinematic journey unfolds, audiences can eagerly await updates on these exciting projects. Stay tuned for more developments in Rajinikanth's cinematic odyssey.
