The much awaited Vijay's next yet-untitled film with filmmaker A R Murugadoss was officially launched with a pooja on Friday in Chennai. The project, which marks the third time collaboration of the actor-director duo after Thuppakki and Kaththi, is being bankrolled by Sun Pictures, most popular for producing Enthiran.
At the formal launch ceremony, Vijay clapped the first shot and the team began regular shooting which will continue for next two days. The next schedule will commence from the first week of February.
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 naturally has built high anticipation around their next project.
It is believed that the project is being planned as a Diwali 2018 release and it might lock horns with Ajithâ€™s Viswasam at the box-office.
A R Rahman has been officially signed on for the project, which will mark his reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini.
While it has already been confirmed that Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, has been signed on for the project, it has been learned that well-known editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film.
Amid rumours that Vijay will reunite with Theri and Mersal director Atlee for his next project, reports have emerged that he might team up with Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru director H Vinoth, whose work really impressed the former and is said to have expressed interest to join hands.
