Speculations surrounding the female lead in Rajinikanth's next movie, directed by Karthik Subbaraj, has finally come to an end. An official announcement made by the production house has confirmed that the actress in the multilingual movie is none other than Trisha Krishnan.

For years, Trisha Krishnan has been expressing her desire to work with Rajinikanth. Although she had a few opportunities to land a role in Rajnikanth starrer films, dates and other issues had forced her to reject those offers. However, the actress' wish has finally been fulfilled with this movie produced by Sun Pictures.

The production house announced the news on Twitter and wrote, "We are happy to announce that for the first time, @trishtrashers will be acting with Superstar Rajini in #SuperstarWithSunPictures. [sic]"

It seems like Trisha's profile will now be complete as she has now worked with all the A-list actors of her times - Kamal Haasan, Vijay, Ajith, Suriya and Vikram in Tamil. In Telugu, the actress has also teamed up with most of the A-list actors including Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan and Balakrishna.

Coming to the movie, the makers have also signed actress Simran for an important role. It is believed that she will be paired opposite a character played by Rajini, who is said to be appearing in triple roles. 

Vijay Sethupathi will be playing the villain in the movie, which also stars Malavika Mohanan, Bobby Simha, Sananth Reddy, Yogi Babu and many others in supporting roles. Anirudh Ravichander is composing the music for the untitled flick.

As far as the shooting is concerned, the team has already wrapped up a schedule in Dehradun and the second schedule will be shot in Chennai.
