Rajinikanth’s biopic in the works?

A source told the portal that Sajid, a huge fan of Rajinikanth, is personally examining the script. Additionally, the speculations imply that the film will revolve around Rajinikanth as a human rather than a superstar. According to reports, the movie will also tell his rags-to-riches story.


The insider revealed, “Very few know that Sajid Nadiadwala is a big fan of not just Rajinikanth the actor, but also Rajinikanth the person. He believes that Rajinikanth’s story deserves to be seen by the world – from a bus conductor to a superstar. Sajid is personally looking into the script and working towards getting the film to the spectacle.” While the movie's script is currently a ‘work in progress’, Rajinikanth and Sajid Nadiadwala haven't officially acknowledged the development. The biopic is expected to go on the floor in 2025.
