Here is an interesting update about the nickname of Vijay in the actor’s upcoming film directed by Atlee, which is being fondly called as Thalapathy-63.
It is said that is that ‘Bigil’ or ‘Bigilu’ is the nickname for Vijay in this movie, which is being touted to be a sports entertainer.
Vijay plays a dual role—father and son. Michael is the character name of the son and his pet name in his neighborhood is Bigil. The team is planning to complete the shoot by early next month. Touted to be an emotional sports entertainer, Vijay plays a football coach who trains underprivileged girls and leads them to victory.
Reports are that Vijay is apparently playing the characters of a father and his son. The portions involving the father character of Vijay are reportedly being shot in Chennai currently.
The title and first look of ‘Thalapathy 63’ will be unveiled on Vijay’s birthday on June 22. Produced by AGS Entertainment, the film also has an ensemble of actors including Nayanthara, Kathir, Vivek, Yogi Babu, Anandaraj, Jackie Shroff, Indhuja, Rebba Monica, Varsha and Daniel Balaji in pivotal characters.
Music is by Oscar-Grammy winner A R Rahman. Recently, with Atlee temporarily postponing the shoot of his upcoming film with Vijay due to hectic computer graphics work which requires his personal supervision, the movie’s heroine Nayanthara left for vacation.
