Ramya Krishnan is officially a part of Jailer, directed by Nelson Dilipkumar. The movie, which was previously titled Thalivar 169 is all set to start shooting on August 10th. Ramya said, “I start shooting for Jailer with Rajinikanth from tomorrow. I am very excited.” This is a much awaited pairing as the duo became super-hit after Padaiyappa in 1999. Apart from that film, the two have also acted in Baba and Padikkadhavan.
According to reports, the movie also features Aishwarya Rai and Shiva Rajkumar in key roles, though none of the actors have confirmed their involvement yet. The music is composed by Aniruddh with Vijay Kartik Kannan as 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.
