Actress Samantha, who is currently busy shooting for Tamil film Irumbu Thirai, apart from her Telugu projects, will finally join the sets of Vijayâ€™s next film in June. According to sources close to the Manam star, her portion will be shot with Vijay in Chennai, as soon as the team returns from their Europe schedule. This is second time in a row after Theri that Samantha has teamed up with Vijay and their fans are eagerly waiting for the onscreen magic.
In the film, Vijay plays triple roles. It has been revealed that he will be seen playing a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. In a recent media report, it was denied that Vijay plays a Sikh character. â€śVijay will appear in three different roles â€” a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. The actorâ€™s comic timing will be brought on screen through the magicianâ€™s role. His portions are intended to evoke laughter and lighten up the mood.â€ť
As the Panchayat head, sporting a twirled moustache, Vijay will be seen in the period portion. â€śThose portions were completed in Chennai and Rajasthan. Itâ€™s set in the 80â€™s with a rural backdrop. Nithya Menen essays his pair in the retro portion,â€ť the source added.
Itâ€™s the first time in his career Vijay will be seen playing triple roles of that of a father and two sons. The makers are currently shooting a month-long schedule across various exotic locations in Europe. The makers had recently confirmed that the film will hit the screens worldwide in October, most likely for Diwali, as Rajinikanthâ€™s 2.0 has already backed out of the race. Being bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films, AR Rahman is composing the music. The film stars actor-filmmaker S.J Suryah as an antagonist, apart from Kajal Aggarwal in a key role.
