The core team of Theri - Vijay, director Atlee and composer GV Prakash - were said to team up once again for Vijay 61.
However, when Thenandal Films came on board, it was rumoured that double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman would join the project as he was originally signed by the production house for their film with Sundar C, which has been put on the back burner at present.
Earlier this week, reports have surfaced that Rahman's nephew has been brought back on board the project, which will take off later this year.
It has to be seen whether it's going to Rahman or Prakash who will eventually be signed on for the project.
An official announcement in this regard is awaited from the makers.
Meanwhile, GV Prakash is busy with his acting assignments.
With nearly six films in his kitty, it would be interesting to know how Prakash will find time to compose for Vijay's next.
According to reliable sources, Atlee is yet to lock the final draft of the script.
Initially, it was reported that Prasad would pen the story; however, it has been confirmed that he will only lend support in the screenplay department on the original story written by Atlee.
