The success of Baahubali and Bajarangi Bhaijaan catapulted the career of its veteran writer Vijayendra Prasad to dizzying heights. Prasad, since the release of these films, has been on every star's wish list including the likes of Rajinikanth and Chiranjeevi.
Going by the industry grapevine, Prasad has been roped in to pen the story of Vijay's next project with director Atlee. However, an official confirmation is awaited from the makers.
When we contacted a source from the film's camp, we were informed that Prasad has been approached by Thenandal Films, the film's makers and a decision has to be arrived at yet. Apparently, Prasad and Atlee are expected to meet soon and discuss in detail. The source also clarified that the project won't be a sequel to Theri, however, confirmed that it will be another action-packed script.
The regular shooting of the project will commence from February next year.
