Vijay’s next movie currently referred as Vijay 62 is set to be directed by A R Murugadoss and produced by Sun Pictures.
The latest update on this movie is, due to the Kollywood strike shooting of the movie Vijay 62 has stopped and the shooting will resume abroad once the issues are sorted out. Meanwhile veteran actor Radha Ravi who plays a poltician with negative shades in the film has praised Vijay.
Radha Ravi has stated up in a recent interview that though he has shared screen with Vijay in four movies, it is in ‘Thalapathy 62’ that he has many portions with him and was awestruck by his encouragement of costars. He has shared that the mass hero never demands that his scenes be shot first but waits patiently on sets. One more observation that Radha Ravi has made is that Vijay most of the time just takes a nap on the set floors instead of going to his caravan.
Vijay’s latest film, the action-thriller Mersal directed by Atlee, co-starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen and produced by Sri Thenandal Films was released on Diwali 2017. Mersal became the highest-grossing film of Vijay’s career, and the first of his films to gross over ₹250 crore.
Also, the makers of Ajith’s Viswasam directed by Sive also reportedly eyeing a Diwali 2018 release.
