Vijay is easily one of the biggest stars in the Tamil film industry. He has a huge number of fans and his movies always break box-office records. Mersal was his last project and the 2017 blockbuster recently won in two categories at the 65th Filmfare Awards South. While A. R. Rahman took home the award for the Best Music Director, Nithya Menen was given the award for the Best Supporting Actress.
Vijay is currently working on his 62nd film which is tentatively titled Thalapathy 62. The movie is directed by none other than AR Murugadoss. The filmmaker is highly respected down South and has also made several Hindi movies. Vijay and Murugadoss had previously worked together on the 2012 action-thriller – Thuppakki. The film was not only a roaring success but even got a thumbs up from the critics. The director later remade the movie in Hindi with Akshay Kumar playing the lead character. It was titled Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty. Unfortunately, this Bollywood film wasn’t as successful as the Tamil one.
While the name of Vijay’s upcoming film is not yet revealed, it was recently announced that it would hit theatres for Diwali. The title of the project will be out in a few days and this upcoming Tamil movie is expected to set the cash registers ringing. Besides the megastar Vijay, the movie also stars Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, and Yogi Babu. Thalapathy 62 will clash with Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan at the box-office as that film too will release in November 2018.
