Rajini to turn a police officer

After a huge hit in Petta, Rajinikanth is all set to begin his next venture. It would be directed by A R Murugadoss. Initially it was reported that it would be an political thriller and that Rajini would play a Chief Minister. However Murugadoss was quick to deny the reports. Sources close to Murugadoss say that it would be an action-packed entertainer. Rajinikanth would play a tough police officer. Remember he acted  as cop in films including Moondru Mugam, Kodi Parakkuthu and Pandian.  To be produced by Lyca International, the film would go on floors next month. Murugadoss' last was Sarkar featring Vijay.
