Ilayathalapathy’s 60th film will be helmed by none other than director Bharathan. He was the one who wrote dialogues for Vijay’s blockbuster film Ghilli and also directed Vijay’s first ever double action film Azhagiya Tamil Magan. Made on a massive scale, ATM’s music was unanimously well-received.
Reports suggest that earlier, A.R. Rahman was linked with ‘Vijay 60’. But eventually, the rumours died and now Yuvan Shankar may be composing the tunes for Vijay’s 60th film.
Though this might come as a surprise for a lot of people, sources confirm that Vijay’s long pending decision has been made because of the star’s special consideration for the script more than anything else. Madhie will be the cameraman, Praveen KL will be the editor and talks are on for the firming up of music composer and other parts of the cast and crew.
Nagi Reddy’s Vijaya Productions who produced Ajith’s Veeram will be funding this film. More to the trivia, it was the very same Bharathan who wrote the dialogues for Ajith’s Veeram as well.
There will be a small pooja on the coming Sunday and official pre-production will begin from then. Shoots would begin from March 2016. Wishing the team the best!
Editor Praveen KL wrote on his official Twitter page, “Yes guys. It is true. Im on board for #Ilayathalapathy #vj60 super excited for the racy script. I thank #vijay sir and #bharathan sir.”
