Since the release of Maattrraan itself, there have been reports that K V Anand will direct Rajinikanth. The reports were suggesting that this combo movie will be produced by AGS Entertainment and that AGS has paid an advance to Rajini and K V Anand for next movie.
K V Anand was keeping silence regarding these reports but he was continuously in touch with Rajini to get his interest for the movie. Now the latest information to get is that Rajinikanth has been replaced by Arya. This may be the reason for K V Anand’s silence.
