Thalapathy Vijay has joined hands with director Atlee for his next project which is yet to be titled. The film is being shot in and around Chennai and is being referred to as Thalapathy 63. A while ago, it was being speculated that Vijay would be seen playing a football coach in the film and his character would be called Joseph. However, these were unofficial reports and makers are yet to confirm it officially. And now, emerging reports reveal another interesting aspect about the film. News has it that Vijay would be seen playing dual role in this film, one a younger role and other being the older football coach role. All these might be officially confirmed with the first look and title poster of the film which is expected to be released on Vijay’s birthday, June 22. Fans are eagerly waiting for the special day and expect a big update about the star’s next project.
It is also being speculated that Atlee has written fee flashback scenes in the film which would have Vijay performing some high octane stunts. Reportedly, Vijay had already shot for these scenes and will be a treat for the fans.
Thalapathy 63 will be the third collaboration of Vijay and Atlee who previously worked on Mersal and Theri together. After the huge success of Mersal, expectations from their upcoming project are towering high now. The film is expected to hit the screens during Diwali continuing the tradition that Vijay has followed for the last few years. Nayanthara would be seen playing the leading lady in this yet-untitled project.
Vijay was last seen in Sarkar which was directed by A.R. Murugadoss. The film was a political drama and had Vijay playing a vigilante in the plot. Sarkar was one of the biggest hits of 2018 and continued Vijay’s success streak at the box office.
