‘Vijay 60’ title : Announced on Ganesh Chaturthi
The title of Vijay’s forthcoming movie will be announced on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, on Sept. 5. The news came as a surprise to many as the makers had not given any signs of the name being revealed at this stage.
Giving a hint about the announcement of the title on Ganesh Chaturthi, public relations professional Riaz K Ahmed tweeted, “#Breaking :- #Ilayathalapathy @actorvijay ‘s #Thalapathy60 Title will be announced in few days. [sic]” Sources say that it will be a catchy title with multiple words and not a single-word name as reported by a section of media earlier.
It has to be noted that since 2000, only two of Vijay’s films (“Puthiya Geethai” and “Azhagiya Tamil Magan”) have had multiple-word titles. In the last nine years, all his films had one-word names. For the latest venture, “Enga Veetu Pillai,” “Namma Veetu Pillai” and “Unga Veetu Pillai” are the three names that have been doing the rounds.
Daniel Balaji, Sathish, Mimi Gopi, Harish Uthaman, Sharath Lohitashwa, Sreeman, YG Mahendra and others are playing supporting roles. Keerthy Suresh and Aparna Vinod play the female leads in “Vijay 60,” which features Santhosh Narayanan’s music, M Sukumar’s editing and Praveen KL’s editing.
“Vijay 60” is written and directed by Bharathan, and funded by Vijaya Productions.
