Thalapathy Vijay made a big splash in the trailer, which was launched on social media on Saturday, of his upcoming movie ‘Bigil’, directed by Atlee. The star shines in dual roles as Michael and Rayappan.
While the younger Vijay named Michael (but with a nickname ‘Bigil’ that he also sports on his jersey) is a football player, the older Vijay, Rayappan, comes off as a local don. Nayanthara is the leading lady.
Creative producer Archana Kalpathi shared the link on social media, posting, “Engalukku football ellam theriyadhu aana enga aattam Verithanama irukum!Kalpathi S Aghoram presents the trailer of our #Thalapathy’s #Bigil.”
Thalapathy Vijay and Nayanthara's Bigil is one of the much-awaited movies of the year.
The first look posters and songs released earlier were an indication that the film is a sport drama, revolving around a women’s football team coached by Vijay’s character, but raised speculation on the actor playing dual roles.
Produced by AGS Entertainments, Bigil is made on a whopping budget of Rs 180 crore. The film has an ensemble star cast which includes Vivekh, Jackie Shroff, Daniel Balaji, Anandraj, IM Vijayan, Indhuja Ravichandran, Reba Monica John and Varsha Bollamma. Music for the film is by AR Rahman. While KG Vishnu has handled the cinematography, Ruben has handled the editing. The film is gearing up to hit screens for Deepavali.
