Vettaiyan holds a unique significance as it marks the reunion of Rajinikanth and Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan on screen after a hiatus of three decades since their last collaboration in Hum (1991). Vettaiyan will feature Rajinikanth portraying a dynamic police officer and will explore themes of unchecked authority within law enforcement.


Alongside Rajinikanth and Fahadh Faasil, the film features Rana Daggubati, Manju Warrier, Dushara Vijayan, and Ritika Singh in pivotal roles.



Is Rajinikanth making his Bollywood comeback?

Rumours are rife that after 13 years ever since Ra.One, the veteran actor might take a flight to Hindi cinema. This news escalated after producer Sajid Nadiadwala took to X and hinted at a collaboration between the duo. Sajid quoted in the viral tweet, “It's a true honour to collaborate with the legendary @rajinikanth Sir! Anticipation mounts as we prepare to embark on this unforgettable journey together!”
