Actor Vijay is currently busy shooting for his untitled upcoming film, which goes by the title Vijay 61 or Thalapathy 61 for time being. The film unit has started the second leg of shooting in Chennai today which is said to be a long schedule where they have erected some huge sets on the city’s outskirts. Shooting for the film is expected to be wrapped up by July end.
The latest buzz is that the rising comedy sensation Yogi Babu will join the sets of Vijay 61 which already has Vadivelu and Sathyan for comedy. Going by the report, Yogi Babu is the third addition as comedian who will play an important role along with Vijay, which is also his first movie with the Theri hero.
The star studded project is directed by Atlee and it is confirmed that Vijay will be donning triple roles in the film – a father and two sons. With three heroines onboard, Nithya Menon will play opposite father’s character while Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha will pair up with his sons respectively.
Like I said, it has an ensemble star cast including SJ Surya, Sathyaraj, Vadivelu, Kovai Sarala and others with the recent addition of Yogi Babu. Samantha will join the sets soon. Bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films, Vijay 61 is slated for a September release, on the occasion of Vijayadasami.
