Indian superstar Rajinikanth is currently filming for his next project Annathe. Directed by Siruthai Siva, the Rajinikanth starrer first went on floors in December 2019 but the makers had to curb the shooting in February 2020 due to the pandemic and the countrywide lockdown. The film resumed shooting in November last year but had to be halted again after several crew members were tested positive for COVID-19 and the superstar himself was hospitalised due to fluctuation in blood pressure. It seems that Rajinikanth has resumed from his break and has jumped back to work as he was clicked on the sets of the Annathe.
The picture was shared by Sun Pictures, the producer of the movie. In the new picture, we can see Rajinikanth interacting with the director Siva while shooting for the movie. Sharing the picture, Sun Pictures wrote, "#Annaatthe from the shooting spot." in the caption. Rajinikanth is spotted wearing a simple white t-shirt and matching lungi in the picture and is smiling along with the director who is also smiling in the picture.
