Surprise addition to Vijay-64 team

At a time when names of other music composers were doing the rounds, Anirudh Ravichander has been roped in for Vijay’s 64th film, to be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagaram fame.

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 !
