Director Atlee is presently in Los Angeles, hunting for locations to start his next film, which will have Vijay in the lead role.
Fondly called as Thalapathy-63, the film to be produced by AGS Entertainment has Nayanthara as the heroine. Shooting is expected to be commenced soon.
Meanwhile, Vijay’ Sarkar and Ajith’s upcoming commercial potboiler Viswasam topped the Twitter India trends for the year 2018. Seven out of ten trending entertainment topics belong to South India, which shows how Twitter has penetrated into this part of India.
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.
Producer 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.”
