IM Vijayan also part of Thalapathy Vijay’s Bigil
Shoot for Vijay-Atlee team’s ‘Bigil’ nearing completion. One of the most anticipated Tamil film of this year, ‘Bigil’ has the star playing a dual role as a gangster father and his football player son. It has a big star cast comprising of lead actress Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Kathir, Yogi Babu, Vivek, Induja, Varsha Bollamma, Amrita Aiyer, Reba Monica John, Daniel Balaji and Anand Raj.
Interestingly, the makers have also roped in former Indian footballer and Malayali actor IM Vijayan to play a crucial role. Vijayan has previously acted in Tamil films like ‘Thimiru’, ‘Komban’ and ‘Gethu’. In ‘Bigil’, he will reportedly be seen alongside the father character, done by Vijay. Since the movie has a football backdrop, it is most likely that Vijayan will be showing some of his extraordinary football skills.
‘Bigil’ has music composed by AR Rahman. Vijay has also rendered a track in the movie. Cinematography is by ‘Mersal’ fame GK Vishnu and edits are handled by Ruben. AGS Entertainment is producing the movie, which is slated for a grand Diwali release in October.
