Vijay who is basking in the success of his Master directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj has decided on his next. Nelson Dhilipkumar will be directing #Thalapathy65 and it is reported that he will have Arun Vijay playing the antagonist in the movie. Nelson debuted with the comedy thriller ‘Kolamavu Kokila’ starring Nayanthara and will have Anirudh composing the songs. It is also rumoured that Pooja Hegde, a popular name in Tollywood and Bollywood actress will be paired opposite Vijay. While Vijay’s 65th movie is confirmed, talks are on for his next. While Lokesh Kanagaraj stands a chance to direct him again, there is news that Vijay may team up with H Vinoth, who is directing Ajith in Valimai. Earlier, the director had directed Ajith in Ner Konda Paarvai and Karthi in Theeran Adhigaaram Onnu.
The basis of this news is that Vinoth had earlier narrated a story to Vijay, a political subject. Though he liked it, Vijay did not want to take it up as he had just delivered Sarkar, a movie with political overtones. However, it is said that Vijay is now interested in re-looking at Vinoth’s project and chances are high that he may rope in the young director to helm the project.
While there was news that Siva who is directing Rajinikanth in Annaatthe would direct Vijay for his 66th project, it seems that the idea has been abandoned as Siva is struck with Annaatthe and he also has to finish a project with Suriya.
However, to get a clarity on #Thalapahty66, we might have to wait for some more time.
