The shooting of Vijay’s 62nd flick, which has not been titled but, has recommenced with the Tamil Film Producers Council strike coming to an end. According to statements, the team had shot the intro character, probably a kuthu song starring Vijay onward with shots of dancers.
This song, composed by the Oscar-winning music director AR Rahman has been presented by Diwakar, well remembered for songs such as ‘Nenjukulle Nee’ in Vadacurry and ‘Tango Kelayo’ in Kaatru Veliyidai.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, this untitled flick passed on to the stages early this year and has been growing steadily with the two schedules staying covered. According to statements, the team plans to shoot a schedule in the US. Bankrolled by Sun Pictures, Kalanithi Maran on a very high budget, the film stars Keerthy Suresh as Vijay’s lead pair.
It may be considered here that Vijay and AR Murugadoss had associated earlier for two films – Thuppaki and Kaththi – and this is their third adventure together. The film also stars Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar in a crucial role with Radha Ravi playing the enemy and Yogi Babu and Livingston also included in supporting characters.
The technical organization of this film includes Girish Gangadharan for cinematography, A Santhanam for art direction and A Sreekar Prasad for editing. It is learned from authentic sources that the film will also star Pazha Karuppaiah in the role of a politician and he will be seen playing a negative character as well. The film has been penned jointly by director AR Murugadoss and writer Jeyamohan.
The shooting of Vijay 62 is growing at a breakneck speed so as to enable it to hit the silver screens on November 7 to make it a Diwali release. Touted to be a political action thriller, it is one of the most expected films of the year. It may be mentioned here that a bike stunt sequence featuring Vijay was canned a few weeks ago and it leaked online creating a massive ruckus.
