The much awaited title and first look of Ilayathalapathy Vijay starrer conceived by Bharathan were released last week. The shooting is going on at breakneck pace, and the team is currently camped at Rajahmundry shooting some important scenes of the movie.
Meanwhile, the makers released the first look of the Malayalam version of the film on Monday. Vijay's last outing "Theri" was released in more than 180 screens across Kerala and performed well at the Kerala box office.
Mollywood actress Keerthy Suresh is playing the female lead and will be seen as a college girl in the film. The film also stars Malayalam actress Aparna Vinod who plays a pivotal role, while popular Malayalam actor Vijayaraghavan returns to Tamil cinema after 26 years.
Though Vijay gets back to the full-fledged commercial mould in this film, it is said that the film will not have any punch dialogues. Sources say this is as per Vijay's request to the director.
The makers are planning to wrap shooting by September end or early October, after which the post-production work will begin, so that they can be ready for a Pongal 2017 release. Bankrolled by Vijaya Productions, Jagapathi Babu and Daniel Balaji appear as villains in the movie. The tunes will be composed by Santhosh Narayanan, marking his first collaboration for a Vijay film.
