Adding more excitement to the project, it is also expected that actress Shruti Haasan will be playing a key role in Thalaivar 171. Though an official confirmation is pending, there have been several speculations that the actress will be playing Rajinikanth’s daughter in the film. It is worth to also note that Shruti and Lokesh had recently collaborated on a music video called Inimel together.



Moreover, there is also a buzz that actor Sathyaraj will also be playing a key role in the film, marking it as a reunion of both actors on screen after several years.

Lokesh Kanagaraj’s use of silver kadas in films and title tease

Amidst the multitude of speculations and theories circulating, the director took to his social media platform to share a post. The image showcased the renowned actor's right hand, adorned with a cluster of intricately intertwined silver watches. Notably, the director once again incorporated the iconic silver kada into the ensemble, further emphasizing its significance for Rajinikanth.

For those who are unaware, up until now most of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s protagonists in films have worn the same silver kadas on their right hand. Be it Thalapathy Vijay starrer films Master or Leo and Kamal Haasan’s Vikram, the tradition has been followed for quite some time.

Moreover, the new poster of Thalaivar 171 shared by Lokesh also mentions in the caption, “D.I.S.C.O.” which may be linked to the film’s title. However, it seems that the tease will only be answered after the title teaser is released. Also, another poster was shared by the makers, where we can see the use of watches once again.
