Atlee’s next to feature Nayanthara in lead opposite Vijay

After a hiatus of nine years, Nayanthara and Vijay will team up once again in Atlee’s next movie, which is presently named ‘Thalapathy 63’.

Nayanthara and Vijay were last seen in 2009 in 'Villu' helmed by Prabhu Deva. The shooting of the new movie will comment in January 2019. For Vijay and director Atlee, this will be their third venture.

The new film is set for a Diwali release in 2019, keeping in mind to create another block buster for Vijay after two back-to-back successes, Mersal and Sarkar.

Archana Kalpathi, the producer of this yet-to-be-named movie, has already confirmed the presence of Kollywood’s lady superstar, Nayanthara. Touted to be a sports entertainer, it is rumored that Vijay will feature as a coach. Comedians Yogi Babu and Vivek are on board while the rest of the cast is yet to be finalised. The film has music by AR Rahman and the project marks the third consecutive collaboration of AR Rahman and Vijay after Mersal and Sarkar.
