Ilaiyathalapathy Vijay has commenced shooting for his next film with director Atlee, and the project is rumoured to star him in a khaki-clad avatar.
According to the industry grapevine, Vijay will be playing a cop after Theri, and might also be seen in dual roles. While this information still needs to be officially verified by the makers, it has been confirmed by sources from the filmâ€™s unit. In Theri, Vijay played a doting father and an upright police officer.
Vijay 61 also stars Nithya Menen, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, and all the three leading ladies have substantial parts to play in the film. SJ Suryah and Sathyaraj will also be seen in pivotal roles. However, itâ€™s not known clearly yet whether Suryah plays the main antagonist in the film, which will have music by AR Rahman. Baahubali writer K Vijayendra Prasad is penning the screenplay and interestingly this will be his maiden Tamil film in his nearly two-decade long career.
Majority of the film will be shot across exotic locations in US and UK. After wrapping the first schedule in Chennai, the team is expected to travel abroad in mid-March and shoot for over a month. Sri Thenandal Films is bankrolling the project.
