They captioned the post, "When Superstar and Shahenshah met on the sets of #Thalaivar170 Reunion on screens after 33 years! #Thalaivar170 is gonna be double dose of legends! @rajinikanth @SrBachchan Done with MUMBAI Schedule."

In the picture, Amitabh could be seen sitting on a chair looking at the mobile screen with a bandage on his hand. The 'Robot' actor, on the other hand, is seen standing close to him and looking at the screen. 'Thalaivar 170' is being directed by TJ Gnanavel.

Ritika Singh, Manju Warrier, Tushara Vijayan, Rana Daggubati, and Fahadh Faasil have also been cast as extras. Rajinikanth is expected to play a retired police officer in the film.
