It was already reported that Vijay plays a triple role in his next yet-untitled outing with Atlee. It has been revealed that he will be seen playing a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician.

In a report by Deccan Chronicle, it has denied that Vijay plays a Sikh character. “Vijay will appear in three different roles — a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. The actor’s comic timing will be brought on screen through the magician’s role. His portions are intended to evoke laughter and lighten up the mood.”

As the Panchayat head, sporting a twirled moustache, Vijay will be seen in the period portion. “Those portions were completed in Chennai and Rajasthan. It’s set in the 80s with a rural backdrop. Nithya Menen essays his pair in the retro portion,” the source added. It’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 Rajinikanth’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 SJ Suryah as an antagonist, apart from Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in key roles.
