It's official. Vijay’s next film after Bigil will be directed by Maanagram and Kaithi director Lokesh Kanagaraj. Tentatively referred to as Thalapathy 64, the film's announcement poster was released today.
Immensely Happy to be part of #Thalapathy64. @actorvijay anna has always been my core pillar of support and I owe him a lot for pulling me up the ladder. Excited to associate with the talented @Dir_Lokesh and none other than our rock star @anirudhofficial musical @SonyMusicSouth pic.twitter.com/FjPdda5vJC— Xavier Britto (@XavierBrittoDr) August 24, 2019
The poster shows a silhouette of a man sporting a hoodie walking afar in an alley. We can infer that the mystery man is none other than Vijay and the tone of the film will be a dark one, in contrast to other recent entertainers of the actor.
It may be noted that several sources state that the project will be a completely new attempt for the actor and it will be a genre-centric film.
The film's cinematography will be handled by Sathyan Sooryan, while the editing responsibilities go to Philomin Raj, The stunt direction and the art direction are by ‘Stunt’ Silva and Satheesh Kumar, respectively. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
Names like Raashi Khanna, Kabir Singh-fame Kiara Advani, and Rashmika Mandanna are being speculated to play the female lead in the film, which will be produced by Xavier Britto.
Rumours are also rife that Angamaly Diaries-fame Antony Varghese had been roped in to play a pivotal role with negative shades in the film. Arjun's name has also been making the rounds with reference to the film's antagonist.
Vijay's upcoming release Bigil, directed by Atlee, will hit the screens during Diwali weekend.
