Vettaiyan only recently got christened
For the unversed, Rajinikanth celebrates his birthday on December 12 every year. This year, as the veteran actor turned 73, Lyca Productions - the production house bankrolling the project - chose to commemorate the occasion for the actor's fans by announcing the title of the film with an elaborate title teaser. Thalaivar 170, was then christened Vettaiyan.
The teaser added much mystery to the plot of the film as the scenes shift from Rajinikanth reading a book with Subhash Chandra Bose on it to being seen carrying a lathi - the teaser eventually ends with the veteran actor holding a gun, adding much intrigue to what is to come with th TJ Gnanavel film.
