The shooting of the Vijay starrer directed by AR Murugadoss recommenced after the strike called by the Tamil Film Producers’ Council and is progressing well. According to reports, the team is currently busy shooting a political scene that would be a highlight of the film.

Starring Vijay and Keerthy Suresh in the lead roles, the film has Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in a pivotal role. The star cast also includes Prem Kumar, Yogi Babu, Radha Ravi and Pala Karuppiah. Written jointly by AR Murugadoss and B Jeyamohan, the film is produced by Sun Pictures after a long hiatus.

Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman is composing the music for this venture. The music director and the star are associating for the second time in a row which has upped the expectations for this album. Girish Gangadharan is cranking the camera, T Santhanam is the art director and A Sreekar Prasad is in charge of the editing.

The first two schedules of this yet-to-be-titled film have been completed so far and the third schedule is currently happening. Reports about this film say that it will have oodles of politically tinged dialogues which will be a special treat for all Vijay fans. Also a part of the film is planned to be shot in the US.

All eyes are on Thalapathy 62 as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high. Two of Vijay’s best films in recent years have come from Murugadoss and it has naturally built a lot of anticipation around their next project, and the team is looking to deliver a hat trick with this film. The film is expected to hit the silver screens on November 7 to coincide with Deepavali.

Touted to be a political action thriller, the film’s shooting commenced some months ago but was stalled for nearly 45 days owing to the film industry strike. Sources say that this would not hamper its scheduled release and that the team was working to meet the deadline at any cost.
