Actor Vijay’s latest release ‘Mersal’ is having a golden run at the box office across the world and earning great collections for the makers of the film. Directed by Atlee, ‘Mersal’ had Vijay in triple roles and also featured Samantha Akkineni, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen as the leading ladies. Vijay will next team up, again, with A.R.Murugadoss which is yet to be titled. Reports reveal that the film would be a trademark Murugadoss entertainer and will have Vijay in a unique look. The makers are also on the lookout for the lead actress in the film and reports are indicating that Rakul Preet could be the frontrunner for the role.
However, Tamil film circles are abuzz with a story that Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha is also being considered as the lead actress for this Vijay starrer and the makers are planning to approach the actress soon. Speculations regarding this are out because Sonakshi Sinha has worked with A.R.Murugadoss twice before in two Bollywod films – Holiday and Akira. Rumours are rife Sonakshi Sinha might also be a strong contender for the lead role in this yet to be titled film.
Rakul Preet has worked with Murugadoss in Mahesh Babu’s ‘Spyder’ and reportedly the director is mighty impressed with Rakul’s approach and dedication, and hence she is being said to be the frontrunner.
Despite Spyder not working greatly, expectations on this Murugadoss directorial are quite high since the last two films he made with Vijay were super hits – Thuppakki and Kaththi.
