Looks like the Theri actor had a plan in mind when he opted out of Sundar C’s mega budget project.
As we all know, Sundar C was all set to start work on ‘Sanghamitra’ which was touted to be one of the most expensive projects, beating even Baahubali. The director was keen on casting Vijay in the lead role for this grand project, but since the actor had to allot reportedly 250 days for the project, he chose to turn it down. Some reports say, he didn’t want Puli’s failure to be repeated. But whatever the reason may be, Vijay has declined the project.
At the same time, there was a strong buzz that Vijay was planning on working with Atlee again post shooting for Illayathalapathy60. Reportedly the movie will be a family entertainer and will be produced by Sivaji Productions. For all those who don’t know Vijay and Theri had recently collaborated for Theri which fared phenomenally at the box office. According to reports, Atlee had narrated a few stories during the making of Theri. It is one of them that is being finalized for their next project. The duo will begin shooting for the same, after Vijay is done with Bharathan’s film.
And now here’s another surprise–Vijay will be signing another film, this time with Kabali director Pa Ranjith! Yes! you heard that right. Reportedly, the two met up recently and his story impressed the actor. BUt here’s the thing, Pa Ranjith has another upcoming filmw ith 24 actor Suriya as well. It is only after wrapping this movie will move on to working with Vijay.
Currently, Vijay is working on his 60th film. After completing two schedules, the movie is on its third one. The movie also stars Keerthy Suresh in the lead. The makers are reportedly planning for a January 2017 release.
