Is Vijay Sethupathi the villain in Vijay-64?

The latest big buzz in Tamil film circles is that is Vijay Sethupathi has been approached to play the villain role in Vijay’s upcoming film directed by Managaram fame Lokesh Kangaraj.

On Saturday last, the crew of Thalapathy-64 was announced with a poster which got the expectation meters to rise high for this project. The film is tipped to be an adrenaline pumping action thriller and not the usual masala project.

The principal shooting of the yet untitled film, tentatively called Thalapathy-64 will commence by October 2019 and the makers are planning to release the film by April 2020.

To be bankrolled by  Xavier Britto under his banner XB Film Creators Thalapathy 64’s core team will have music by Anirudh Ravichander, cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan, editing by Philomin Raj, stunt direction by ‘stunt’ Silva and art direction by Satheesh Kumar.

Xavier Britto said, “I am extremely glad and elated to announce the association with Thalapathy Vijay after a long period. Previously, I had the opportunity to produce three movies of Thalapathy Vijay and I am very proud to inform you all officially, #Thalapathy64 (tentative title) will kick-start soon, under our banner – XB Film Creators.”

The production house has also released a gritty looking poster for the film. Plans are afoot to commence shoot for the movie by October 2019. The film’s makers are calling it a (no surprise there) ‘mass commercial entertainer’ and hope to release the film by April 2020.

Anirudh said in a tweet: “We are so excited to score for Thalapathy @actorvijay sir in a @Dir_Lokesh directorial !
