Recently, we had reported that young new-gen filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj was the frontrunner for Vijay’s upcoming film as the actor was highly impressed by a story narrated by Lokesh of Maanagaram fame. Now we have more updates on this front.
If sources are to be believed, Vijay has allocated 120 days for his next with Lokesh Kanagaraj. Though many leading directors narrated the basic plot to Vijay, the actor politely turned down their scripts in the first sitting itself.
The actor is said to be hooked by the one-liners of Lokesh Kanagaraj and Vinoth but as the latter has signed a two-film deal with Ajith, Vijay has immediately given nod to the former.
“He has given 120-days call-sheet for the film. And the shoot will begin as soon as he’s done with Thalapathy 63 with Atlee.”
Meanwhile, Atlee has been shooting the sports-based film on full swing, and some pictures from the sets of the movie recently made their way to the social media. The film will hit the screens this year.
Produced by AGS Entertainment, the film which has Nayanthara, Indhuja and others in key roles has musical score by Oscar-Grammy winner A R Rahman.
