The shooting of Vijay’s 63rd film had to be halted briefly after the star’s fans landed in large numbers at the Binny Mills where he was filming. Vijay’s fans were making a beeline to the Binny Mills and this was certainly causing a big hindrance to proceed with the shooting.

According to sources, the film unit is now considering shifting the venue so that they can shoot peacefully. We hear that the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad is being considered but nothing has been finalised as yet.

Earlier, when Vijay was shooting for Mersal, he faced a similar issue and the shooting was moved to northern parts of India where the scenes set in Madurai were shot.

According to a statement released by the makers recently, the film will be ‘PAKKA MASS’ family entertainer with a large cast, superior technical crew and best of production value. “We are putting together the best global talent to attempt a genre that will be the first of its kind for Thalapathy. The film will deal with a genre that will be first-of-its-kind for him,” the statement said.  

Besides the lead pair Vijay and Nayanthara, the cast also includes Kathir, Daniel Balaji, Yogi Babu, Sai Dheena, Vivek, Anandraj and others.
