Director Dharani has said recently that he has the story for Ghilli 2 ready and it will go on the floors should the Ilayathalapathy give him the green signal.
Ghilli was one of the biggest grossers when it was released in 2004 and is still a hot favourite among Vijay fans. In fact, the fans have been celebrating 13 years of Ghilli for the past few days. The racy action entertainer had Vijay playing the lead role with Trisha as his heroine and Prakash Raj as the villain. The film earned all the three, accolades for their performance.
According to sources, fans are eagerly waiting for a sequel to Ghilli as it was this film which put the Ilayathalapathy’s career back on track after a series of flops in the early 2000s. While the director has made it clear that he has an interesting plot ready for the star, the ball is now in the Ilayathalapathy’s court.
Meanwhile, Vijay is busy with the Atlee directorial that hasn’t been titled yet. The film has three heroines, Samantha, Nithya Menen and Kajal Agarwal in the cast with actors like SJ Surya, Sathyaraj, Vadivelu, Kovai Sarala, Sathyan, and Rajendran forming the rest. The untitled film has music by Oscar winning music director AR Rahman. GK Vishnu is wielding the camera for this film with Rubens being roped in for editing. Interestingly, Vijay will be seen in three different roles - Joseph, Maruthu, Salim – in the movie.
Touted to be a high budget film, it is bankrolled by N Ramasamy under his banner Sri Thenandal Films. With the shooting currently in progress, expectations are rife that it will hit the silver screens later this year.
