Speculations about Vijay's next with director Atlee, Bigil have been doing rounds ever since the first look of the film was released a few weeks back. The sports drama, produced by AGS Entertainment, is said to feature Vijay in dual roles as father and son.

Now, we hear that Bigil will have former Indian football team captain, IM Vijayan, in an important role. The footballer will reportedly be seen alongside Vijay's father character. Vijayan has earlier acted in films like Thimiru and Komban.

It was recently revealed that Vijay has sung a song, Verithanam, for the film, marking his first time singing in AR Rahman's music. 

Nayanthara plays the female lead in Bigil, which also features actors like Amirtha Aiyer, Reba Monica John, and Indhuja Ravichandran as footballers, whose team will be coached by Vijay's character. 

Bigil, bankrolled by AGS Entertainment, will hit the screens this Diwali.
