Director AR Murugadoss and Ilayathalapathy Vijay will collaborate for a new film, if the reports are to be believed. The film which is yet to be titled will be produced by Lyca productions, who previously produced their last outing, 2014 film Kaththi.  This will be the director and actor’s third outing together after Kaththi and Thuppakki, both of which were very big hits.

According to sources, the makers are planning to release the film which has been tentatively titled ‘Thalapathy 62’ on Diwali next year. Vijay is currently busy with director Atlee’s upcoming film which will be Vijay’s second film with the director after 2016’s ‘Theri’. The film is reportedly being made on a big budget with a big cast. Reports are coming in that Vijay will play three different roles in the film opposite three different actresses including Nithya Menon, Kajal Agarwal and Samantha. Other cast members include Kovai Sarala, Vadivelu and Sathyaraj. Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman has been roped in for the project. The film produced by ‘Sri Thenandal Films’ has also roped in GK Vishnu as the film’s cinematographer.

On the other hand, Murugadoss is working with Tollywood star Mahesh Babu in a film which stars Rakul Preet Singh and Sj Suryah. The makers are yet to unveil the first look of the film which is being highly anticipated by fans as it will mark Mahesh’s debut in Tamil cinema. The film is expected to release in theatres worldwide in summer on June 23 this year.
