Actor Vijay is working on the most anticipated film of his career and is being referred to a Vijay 61. Directed by Atlee, the film will have songs composed by maestro A R Rahman and will have an ensemble cast of Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth PRabhu and Nithya Menen. Vijay 61 is being produced by Sri Thenandal films, one of the biggest production houses in Tamil cinema.
The makers announced on Tuesday that the first look and the teaser of the film will be announced on June 21st, 2017 at 6:00 PM, which happens to be the eve of Vijay’s birthday. The actor celebrates his birthday on June 22nd and fans of the superstar have some ecstatic plans every year.
This Vijay’s film will be release during Diwali this year and this was made official by the makers as soon as the makers of Rajinikanth’s Robo 2.0 announced the release date for their film. Interestingly, Vijay 61 is the 100th film of Sri Thenandal Films and hence is the most prodigious project for them.
Director Atlee had directed Ilayathalapathy Vijay earlier in Theri which went on to become a magnanimous hit in Tamil cinema and Vijay’s career as well. Besides the lead actors, Vijay 61 also has veteran actors like Sathyaraj, Kovai Sarala, Vadivelu and SJ Suryah among others. The songs in the film are being rendered by musical genius A.R.Rahman.
Vijay 61 was extensively shot in and around in Chennai at huge sets erected exclusively for the film and few portions were also shot across Europe.
