Sources say that Karthik Subbaraj is likely to direct Rajinikanth in another movie. The success of Petta has led the director to write another story for the superstar. It is said to be a hard-hitting story and Rajinikanth has agreed to it. The shoot for the movie is likely to begin by the end of this year.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth is busy with Darbar, directed by A R Murugadoss. An action-packed entertainer, it features him in the role of an encounter specialist. A major portion of the movie is set in Mumbai. Bankrolled by Lyca International, the movie features Nayanthara as the heroine. Music is by Anirudh.
