The Chennai Super Kings team of the IPL cricket tournament, which was banned for two years, will get back into the league next year.
While the CSK owners are trying to bring back its Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni back into its fold, reports surface that Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Nayanthara may be roped in as brand ambassadors. The actors were announced as the brand ambassadors for the Chennai Super Kings team in 2008, it may be mentioned. When enquired about the possibility of Nayanthara and Vijay agreeing to the offer, sources in the trade say that it is too early to speculate on it as the team’s re-entry into the India Premiere League is slated to happen next season, that is in 2018.
Busy with their respective projects, Vijay and Nayan are yet to give their assent, say sources. The actors have shared screen space for the movie Villu in 2009 and this is their only movie together till date. Sources are rife that the Ilayathalapathy and Nayanthara may join hands for a film together in the near future but there is no official word on it.
Viijay is currently busy with the star’s 61st film that hasn’t been titled yet. Directed by Atlee, the film stars Kajal Agarwal and Samantha as his heroines with Nithya Menen, SJ Suryah and Vadivelu in the star cast. AR Rahman is composing the music.
On the other hand, Nayanthara is working in films like Imaikka Nodigal, Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, Aramm and Velaikkaran. Her last outing, Dora, which hit the silver screens recently, was well received by the audiences.
