Here is an official announcement. After the successful Theri, actor Vijay and young director Atlee are teaming up once again and the script work is done.
Sri Thenandal Films is producing the movie and it has announced that the script has been finalised. “Official Announcement: Script locked today! #Thalapathy61 @actorvijay @Atlee_dir,” it posted on its microblogging page.
The makers are yet to open up on the cast and crew of the movie. So far, what is known is that KV Vijayendra Prasad, the writer of movies like Baahubali series and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, has penned the story for the flick.
Hema Rukmani, the chief executive officer of Sri Thenandal Films, was quoted as saying: “This is our first film with a big hero like Vijay. We are proud of it. Atlee Kumar and Vijay’s combo was successful earlier and we hope they will recreate the magic again.”
The announcement sent Vijay fans in frenzied excitement and #Thalapathy61 became the top trending topic in the social media in no time.
While some reports claim that Oscar-winner A R Rahman has been tapped to compose music for the film, other reports suggest that the makers are likely to go ahead with GV Prakash, who has worked in Atlee’s two previous films.
