After delivering blockbusters such as Thuppakki and Kaththi, filmmaker AR Murugadoss and actor Vijay are teaming up for the third time for Thalapathy 62 and the project is likely to roll from December this year, reliable sources have confirmed. While it has already been confirmed that Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, has been signed on for the project, it has been learnt that well-known editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the project. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon.

Sun Pictures, best known for producing Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, will bankroll the project on a lavish budget. Double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman is in talks with the makers of the film even while Anirudh Ravichander and GV Prakash Kumar, both known for their successful collaboration with Vijay in films such as Kaththi and Theri respectively, are also said to be in discussions to join the project.  

The yet-untitled film was supposed to happen even before Theri, but for reasons unknown it was delayed and is finally taking shape. During the release of Akira, his last Hindi outing, Murugadoss had confirmed that a project with Vijay is on the cards. In 2013, he had also tweeted that he will be reuniting with Vijay and he is thrilled about it. It’s tipped to be another action entertainer from Murugadoss, who who is under tremendous pressure to deliver following the debacle of SPYder, his bilingual film with Mahesh Babu. Murugadoss is currently giving final touches to the script which is tipped to be an action entertainer.

All eyes are on Thalapathy 62 as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high. Two of Vijay's best films in recent years have come from Murugadoss and it naturally has built high anticipation around their next project. It is believed that the project is being planned as a Diwali 2018 release. It might even come earlier if completed on time. Otherwise, the makers will look for a very good festival release date. Banking in the phenomenal success of Mersal, Vijay will be hoping to continue his winning streak with this project.
