Filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj, who made a splash with his first film Maanagaram, will direct Vijay in his next film which is currently dubbed as Thalapathy 64. It is already rumored that the yet-untitled thriller will feature Vijay in the role of a ruthless gangster. It is widely speculated by a section of the media that the makers are planning to rope in actor Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist.
However, an official announcement is yet to be made. If Sethupathi comes on board, it will be the first time he will be sharing screen space with Thalapathy Vijay. With nearly half a dozen projects in the making, including a Bollywood offering from Aamir Khan, it has to be seen if Vijay Sethupathi will have time for this film.
Meanwhile, the makers of Thalapathy 64 are yet to reveal the complete cast. However, it has been confirmed that the film will have music by Anirudh Ravichander. Sathyan Sooryan will crank the camera while Philomin Raj will take care of editing. T
here are rumors that Kiara Advani was being considered for the leading ladyâ€™s role. But reliable sources have confirmed that Kiara is not an option anymore and the team is busy finalising two heroines.
Vijay currently awaits the release of Bigil with director Atlee. The film, which is gearing up for release this Deepavali will see him play a football coach to a womenâ€™s team. The film, being produced by AGS Entertainment, was officially launched last November in Chennai.
Last month, a massive football set was built on a budget of Rs 6 crore. Meanwhile, Vijay was recently trained by a special physical trainer to prepare for his role, and sixteen women will star as sports players in the film, which also stars Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Kathir, Yogi Babu and Vivek in crucial roles.
