While reports earlier suggested that Rajinikanth was to romance a young actor like Tamannah, the latest update is that the latter is only doing a cameo and will only be in the film for a short screentime. This has now started rumours that Tamannah is probably going to be portrayed as Rajini’s daughter in the film and that her portions will come in the flashback. Vinayakan, Vasanth Ravi, Yogi Babu, and Redin Kingsley are also part of the ‘Jailer’ cast, while the film’s music will be scored by Anirudh Ravichander.
Vijay Kartik Kannan is the cinematographer. The film will be shot extensively at Ramoji Filmcity in Hyderabad and Rajini is said to be playing the titular role of a jailer. Much like other Nelson films, this one too is expected to be a quirky action thriller, though in an altogether unique space.
On the work front, Tamannah who was last seen in F3, is now filming only for Bhola Shankar, a remake of the Tamil film Vedalam. She is awaiting the release of 4 films, including, Babli Bouncer, Bole Chudiyan, Plan A Plan B, and Gurthunda Seethakalam. Except for the last one, all other three films are in Hindi. In Babli Bouncer, she is all set to be playing a dual role, one of a male character and one of a female character. She is co-starring with Sathyadev Kancharana in Gurthunda Seethakalam. She has also completed shooting for a Hindi web-series called Jee Karda for Amazon Prime.
