The latest buzz in the industry is that the talks have made some progress, and Murugadoss has signed Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha as the female lead for the film, which is tentatively titled Vijay 62. If rumours come true, it will mark her second film in Kollywood.
Sonakshi Sinha played the lead in the titular role of ARM’s recent Hindi venture, Akira and Holiday, the Bollywood remake of Thuppakki. Reportedly, the daughter of Bollywood hero-turned-politician has said, “I’m ready to star in Murugadoss sir’s next film as I have already worked with him in a couple of films. I have watched Vijay’s Thuppakki and Kaththi and feel he is a good actor. I won’t let an opportunity to pair opposite him get away.”
Vijay 62 will mark Murugadoss’s third film with Vijay in the lead role. Previously, they both have delivered box office blockbusters like Thuppakki and Kaththi.
Santhosh Sivan says, “Currently, I am shooting for ARM and Mahesh Babu’s bilingual film. Until anything is finalised, I won’t be able to say anything concrete.” Vijay 62 is likely to go on floors later this year. Meanwhile, Vijay would complete his film with Atlee, while ARM will wrap up his Telugu-Tamil bilingual with Mahesh Babu.
Even as Ilayathalapathy Vijay has just started shooting for his movie with director Atlee, speculations are rife that he is in serious talks with director AR Murugadoss for his next film.
