Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film, “Coolie,” directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, has been generating significant buzz among fans.

The makers of “Coolie” reportedly reached out to Fahadh Faasil, hoping to cast him in a key role. Fahadh, who shares a great rapport with director Lokesh Kanagaraj (having previously worked together in the superhit film “Vikram”), was considered an essential part of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU). However, things didn’t quite work out due to scheduling conflicts.

Fahadh Faasil, known for his versatile performances, is currently juggling multiple projects. His ongoing commitment to another film, “Vettaiyan,” left him unable to take up the role in “Coolie.” Despite the tempting offer, Fahadh had to prioritize his existing commitments.

“Coolie” promises to be a gripping gangster drama, with Rajinikanth essaying the role of a don. The film’s announcement teaser hints at a storyline set against the backdrop of gold smuggling. Although directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, “Coolie” stands independently and won’t be part of the LCU, which includes films like “Vikram,” “Kaithi,” and “Leo.”

Apart from Rajinikanth, “Coolie” features Sathyaraj and Shruti Haasan in key roles. The music, composed by Anirudh Ravichander (who has collaborated with Rajinikanth on previous projects), adds to the film’s anticipation. Fans can expect the movie to hit theaters next year.

In summary, Fahadh Faasil’s rejection of the role in “Coolie” highlights the actor’s commitment to his existing projects. While fans may miss seeing him alongside Rajinikanth, they can still look forward to the superstar’s powerful performance in this standalone gangster saga.
