AR Murugadoss and Vijay’s Kaththi first look is getting ready and if sources are to believed the first look is likely to be revealed on April 14 for Tamil New year.
It is said Vijay is playing a dual role in Kaththi and the first look will be of a unique design. Kaththi has Vijay, Samantha, Neil Nitin Mukesh and many to its star cast. Kaththi has music by Anirudh and cinematography by George C Williams.
Produced by Ayngaran and Lyca, Kaththi is slated for Diwali release.
Actress Madhubala, who became a big favorite among the masses in the early 90s with the path-breaking Roja and Gentleman is making a comeback to Tamil cinema with Vaayai Moodi Pesavum, directed by Balaji Mohan. Madhu will be seen in a pivotal role as a writer in this movie, co-starring Nazriya and Dulquer Salman. In a recent interview she was asked about her favorites among the current generation of actors and actresses. She has a special liking towards Trisha, Nayanthara and also Ilayathalapathy Vijay.
Regarding Vijay she says “I love Vijay. In Bombay, I have watched all Vijay movies except the recent Jilla. I would really enjoy acting with him.”
In a breaking news update, the director of Vijay’s upcoming movie, A.R.Murugadoss has updated that the title of his movie is Kaththi. Earlier, it was rumored that the film has been tentatively titled Dheeran but now such speculations have been cleared with this major announcement.
Samantha is Vijay’s co-star in the movie and the team is currently shooting in Hyderabad in searing heat. Lyca Productions are funding this mega budget movie, which has Anirudh’s music and George Williams behind the camera.
We must say that the title Kaththi is massy, sharp and suits a big action star like Vijay. Good choice, team.
At the success meet of Nimirnthu Nil, which was held 2 days back at a popular Chennai star hotel, director Samuthirakani had revealed that he was in talks for a film with Ilayathalapathy Vijay. When we investigated with a source close to the director, this is what he had to say.
Samuthirakani and Vijay haven’t met each other till now, though they have had discussions over the phone. The talks for this project are in process but nothing has been confirmed. Once they meet, things may fall in place. The situation will also become clearer after the release of Janda Pai Kapiraju, the Telugu version of Nimirnthu Nil. Samuthirakani is also in talks for a film with Jiiva. His next film will be known clearly by April.
It must be noted that after his current commitment with director Murugadoss, Vijay is expected to begin work with director Chimbudevan and he is also in talks for a film with young director Atlee. Will he move on to this proposed Samuthirakani film after all these films or does he have other plans? We have to wait and watch.
The audio launch of Maan Karate was held at the Sathyam Cinemas in Chennai this morning, and director Shankar was the chief guest at the launch. A.R.Murugadoss, who is in charge of the story and is also co-producing the movie, was also present at the launch.
All the speakers were profuse in their praise of composer Anirudh and lead hero Siva Karthikeyan. Shankar went on to add that Thuppakki is his favorite movie, expressing his admiration for A.R.Murugadoss’ skills as a writer. Shankar also admitted that he is an Anirudh fan and that Siva Karthikeyan will join the list of top tier heroes very soon.
Murugadoss also had good words for Anirudh and said that he had delivered his best for their current film with Vijay, which is under production.
A.R.Murugadoss was quick to come out in the open to downplay Thotta Roy Choudary’s role in his upcoming film with Vijay by saying that Roy was just one of the villains and that the main baddie was yet to be cast. Now the director has confirmed casting Bollywood hero Neil Nitin Mukesh as Vijay’s nemesis in the yet to be titled film.
Neil Nitin Mukesh has had an up and down career in Bollywood as a lead but can be proud of doing a variety of films over the past 7 years since his debut. By entering the Tamil industry through such a high profile film, Neil Nitin Mukesh is bound to make more heads turn as he goes up against Vijay.
Close sources to the unit reveal that the shooting is going to happen in and around Hyderabad for another month atleast.
The shoot of the Vijay – Murugadoss film resumed at 12th March 2014 in Hyderabad, after the team had a small break. This happens to be the fourth schedule of the film and yesterday, the team was spotted shooting in the Begumpet area. The team plans to carry on shooting in Hyderabad till the end of the month.
Till now, the shoots of ‘Vijay 57’ have happened in Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad and the film is being planned as a Diwali release.
Samantha is touted to play the female lead role in this Anirudh musical, produced by Lyca Productions.
Vijay 57’s director AR Murugadoss himself confirmed that his film with Vijay will be hitting the screens for this Diwali. It has to remembered that their last outing Thuppakki also got released for Diwali and attained a massive blockbuster status in the trade circle. Vijay 57 has Samantha as the female lead and Anirudh is scoring the music. After completing three successive schedules in Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad, the team will soon resume the shoot in Hyderabad.
AR Murugadoss is planning in such a way that the entire film shooting will be completed by August last week or September first week, so that there will be a one month time for the post production work.
Vijay 57 is jointly produced by Ayngaran International and Lyca productions.
It is a known fact that Vijay’s 58th film will be with Chimbu Devan and sources say that the director is in talks with Priyanka Chopra for the heroine role. It is also said that Illeana will be playing the second heroine in the film.
Now the latest buzz in K-town is that both Vijay and Chimbu Devan have decided to approach AR Rahman for the film. AS Chimbu Devan’s script is novel nd unique they are sure that AR Rahman will accept to compose for the film.
If all goes well after Udhaya and Azhagiya Tamizh Magan, Vijay 58 will be the third Vijay film to have AR Rahman’s music. Vijay 58 will be jointly produced by PT Selvakumar and Shibu of Thameens.
