Nayanthara has joined the sets of Vijay 63, which is being directed by Atlee and produced by AGS Entertainment.
According to sources, the film will fall in a different genre compared to the films that Vijay and Atlee have made together so far.
This will be Vijay’s 63rd film and his third film with Atlee, after Theri and Mersal. The Mersal combo of music director AR Rahman, lyricist Vivek, cinematographer GK Vishnu, editor Ruben and stunt choreographer Anl Arasu have been retained.
Nayanthara, Vivekh, Kathir and Yogi Babu play key roles in this flick, which also has popular comedian Robo Shankar’s daughter in a key role.
After shaking legs with Vijay for an item number in Sivakasi and sharing the screen space with him in Villu, Nayanthara is now all set to play the actor’s love interest in his upcoming film to be directed by Atlee.
“Lately, Nayan has been focussing on roles with a difference. This is one such role which will give him ample scope to perform. Hence she accepted to do it,” sources say.
It is to be noted that Nayanthara was the heroine in Atlee’s debut film Raja Rani. Yogi Babu and comedy actor Vivek are also said to be playing key roles in this flick which is slated for Deepavali release.
Archana Kalpathi tweeted: “A heroine needs to be Strong, Smart and add Strength to the Story AGS is super happy to announce that our very own #Nayan has come on board #Thalapathy63.”
Archana of AGS Entertainment added: “Like all fans I am super excited to see our #Thalapathy #Nayan combo on screen after a longtime @Atlee_dir #Ags.”
