The leaked picture

While the makers are yet to respond, the picture sees Rajinikanth and Fahadh shooting outside a house. Rajinikanth can be seen interacting with a team member and Fahadh can be seen preparing for the scene. Other crew members can be seen crowding near them, with two of them holding umbrellas to shield the actors  from the sun. “Most probably a montage, wholesome,” speculated a fan about the scene, while another X user wrote, “Thalaivar and FaFa in same frame!! (heart emoji).”

About Vettaiyan

Shooting for Vettaiyan has been in progress for the last few months. Rajinikanth was previously spotted shooting for the film in Trivandrum, Tirunelveli and Tuticorin. Post Tuticorin, the makers moved the shoot to Nagercoil. Expectations are high on Vettaiyan because Gnanavel’s last film Jai Bhim with Suriya was a massive hit. Amitabh Bachchan, Rana Daggubati, Manju Warrier, Ritika Singh and Dushara Vijayan also star in the film.
