Vijay and director Atlee are all set to join hands for the third time in the upcoming project, which is currently dubbed as Thalapathy 63. The film, to be produced by AGS Entertainment, was officially launched earlier this week in Chennai.
The film was launched in the presence of Vijay, Atlee and the makers of the film and it is believed that the regular shooting will only commence from January 2019. It has also been confirmed that the film will hit the screens for Diwali next year. The project marks the third consecutive collaboration of AR Rahman and Vijay after Mersal and Sarkar.
According to a statement released by AGS Entertainment, the film will be a mass entertainer and will deal with a genre that will be first-of-its-kind for Vijay. Even as the makers are yet to reveal the complete cast list, rumours are doing the rounds that Rashmika Mandanna is most likely to be signed as the leading lady.
In fact, reliable sources claim that she has already been signed and been asked to block her dates for the next three months. Not long ago, there were rumours that Kiara Advani might make her Tamil debut with this project, which is rumoured to be a sports drama featuring Vijay in the role of a coach.
It has to be seen who will finally get the golden ticket to be part of this project.
Meanwhile, Vijay’s Sarkar is having a dream run in theatres. The AR Murugadoss film has already grossed over Rs 200 crores worldwide and continues to play to packed screens everywhere.
Even as the film got itself embroiled in controversies over taking digs at the ruling government in Tamil Nadu, it didn’t stop it from making an impact at the box-office. Sarkar is doing exceptionally well even in Telugu with the highest share among Vijay's films in recent times.
