We all knew that Vijay will be teaming up with his favorite bankable director AR Murugadoss after Mersal, which is being directed by Atlee. The untitled project (tentatively referred as Thalapathy 62 / Vijay 62) is currently in the early stages of development with only Vijay being confirmed as lead right now. AR Murugadoss is to finalize other cast in the film yet.
In the latest development, sources have confirmed that Thalapathy 62 will be bankrolled by Sun Pictures. The production house was not active for years after ruling ADMK party came to power. It looks like after the demise of ADMK Chief J Jayalalithaa, Sun Pictures returns with a bang.
Thalapathy 62 will be Vijay’s third film with AR Murugadoss after Thuppakki and Kaththi. Both films were commercially hit in terms of critically acclaim and box office. This has created a huge buzz around the film since the announcement of the project.
The film will start shooting in October. AR Murugadoss is presently busy with his bilingual thriller ‘Spyder’ with Mahesh Babu while Vijay will finish off Mersal in few weeks and will take a quick break before commencing Thalapathy 62.
