After Alphonse Puthren’s second directorial ‘Premam’ got released there were rumours that he expressed disinterest in directing Rajinikanth for a movie. He was brutally slammed in social media for the same, however, later on, he clarified that all of those were rumours.
During an interaction on social media, Alphonse Puthren confirmed that he has plans to work with Rajinikanth for a film. And his latest post suggests that the project is still on .
As a filmmaker I wanted to do a film with Rajinikanth sir. 99 percent directors would want to do a film with him. One day an article came out in an online page saying that Alphonse Puthren doesn’t want to do a Rajinikanth film. That news spread everywhere. Soundarya Rajinikanth had messaged me asking about this post. I replied saying that I haven’t given an interview to anyone since Premam release. She understood that and she talked to Rajini sir regarding this. That issue was sorted out then.
