Ilayathalapathy Vijay is a busy man these days with projects lined up in his pipeline. The actor is working on his next with director Atlee which is yet to be titled. The film is being touted to be action entertainer and will portray Vijay in a never seen before Avatar.
Vijay’s latest release, Bairavaa, was a remarkable success in Kollywood and his great run at the box office continued. The film is now being released in Telugu as a dubbed version and will be titled Vijaya Bhairava. The film also features Keerthy Suresh as the female lead.
Directed by Bharathan, Bairavaa also stars Sathish, Jagapathi Babu, Daniel Balaji, Mime Gopi, Sreeman and Sija Rose. The film was produced by Bharathi Reddy and the music is composed by Sanrtosh Narayanan.
Back in 2015, Vijay’s previous release Jilla was released in Telugu just a week after Baahubali The Beginning was released. The makers seem to be using the same logic now and are planning to release it after Baahubali 2 has released, sometime in May. Baahubali 2 is on a record breaking spree and the storm doesn’t seem to be calming down very soon.
Vijay’s upcoming film, referred to as Vijay 61, is being directed by Atlee. The film unit recently completed a leg of shooting in Jaisalmer and returned to Chennai. The shooting will commence in Chennai again in the second week of May. The music of the film is composed by musical genius A R Rahman. The film also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen playing the female roles.
