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>”
The principal shoot of this racy entertainer will begin in January 2019. A R Rahman is composing music for the untitled film which has been called Thalapathy 63 by Vijay fans on Twitter.
