The shooting of the movie will kick start in Malaysia. The untitled movie will also be shot in Thailand and Hong Kong before being wrapped up in Chennai. The shooting will be completed in 60 days.

The interesting part of the film is that most of the team members are working with Rajinikanth for the first time. The director and music director are joining hands with the superstar for the first time and this reason alone has thrilled fans.

Adding to that, it is a dream-come-true for producer Kalaipuli S Dhanu, who always wanted to make a full-fledged movie with Rajinikanth. The superstar had done a cameo in the producer's debut movie, "Yaar".

Coming back to the music aspect of the flick, in the last decade, AR Rahman has been the regular composer in Rajinikanth's films. The roping in of youngster Santhosh Narayanan has come as a big surprise to many.

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth is likely to begin shooting for the project from August. The superstar is returning after back-to-back failures ("Kochadaiiyaan" and "Lingaa").
