Shakthi Chidambaram had earlier taken the title Rajathiraja with Lawrence and got enough publicity and collection at the box office. Based on that sentiment, he has chosen Guru Sishyan as the title of his next film. The director revealed it during the pooja of the film.
Sakthi Chidambaram has made it clear that he has borrowed only the title of the old Rajinikanth- Prabhu film, and that it is not a remake. The shooting of the film started this morning. Shakthi Chidambaram said that the film would be released in December.
