Thalapathy 64 update: Popular Youtube stars to co-star with Vijay in the Lokesh Kanagaraj film
Lokesh, in a recent interview, claimed that the audience will get to witness Vijay in a never-seen-before avatar in the film, while reports say the actor will play a college student
Even before Vijay’s Bigil hits the screens, speculations are already rife about the Mersal actor’s next film. The yet-to-be-titled project, tentatively referred to as Thalapathy 64, will be directed by Maanagaram-fame Lokesh Kanagaraj.
We hear that Lokesh has recently conducted an audition, in which YouTube stars from popular channels such as Parithabangal, Black Sheep, Fun Panrom, Nakkalites, Put Chutney, and Erumai Saani, among others, have participated. Many of these actors, who were recently seen in Sivakarthikeyan's home production, Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu Odu Raja, have reportedly been selected to play important roles alongside Vijay in the film.
Meanwhile, rumours are rife that Vijay might be playing a college student once again after Nanban. Interestingly, Lokesh, in a recent interview to a popular Tamil magazine, had claimed that the audience will get to witness Vijay in a never-seen-before avatar in the film.
Reports also suggest that Vijay Sethupathi has been approached for the antagonist role in Thalapathy 64. Names like Raashi Khanna, Kabir Singh-fame Kiara Advani, and Rashmika Mandanna are speculated to star as the female lead in the film, which is produced by Xavier Britto.
Rumours are also rife that Angamaly Diaries-fame Antony Varghese has been roped in to play a pivotal role in the film. In addition, Arjun's name has also been making the rounds.
Produced by Xavier Britto, the crew from the director's upcoming film Kaithi, starring Karthi, has mostly been retained in its entirety for Thalapathy 64. The music of the film will be composed by Anirudh.
Thalapathy 64 is scheduled for a Summer 2020 release.
