‘Vijay 61’ next schedule Europe will begin in May
Director Atlee has confirmed that the next schedule of his upcoming “Thalapathy 61” project with Ilaiyathalapathy Vijay will be shot across exotic locations in Europe for nearly a one month from May onwards.
Interacting with the media on Monday at the logo launch of his production house A for Apple Studios, Atlee said the team will leave for Europe this weekend. Some important sequences including a song will be shot in this schedule.
Earlier, the makers had planned to shoot in the US. Unfortunately, they had to shelve the idea owing to Donald Trump’s tough immigration policies. The interesting buzz surrounding the film is that Vijay, for the first time in his over two-decade long career, will be seen playing triple roles – that of a father and two sons. While the reports are yet to be confirmed, our sources have told us that the Theri actor in one of the roles will be seen playing a villager and Nithya Menen plays his pair.
The makers had recently confirmed that the film will hit the screens worldwide in October, most likely for Diwali, as Rajinikanth’s 2.o has already backed out of the race. Being bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films, AR Rahman is composing the music.
