Thadam’ fame Magizh Thirumeni to direct Thalapathy 65!!
Recently there were talks in Kollywood circles about actor Vijay trying to change track from his usual commercial-formula films. As a first, he signed a film with the two-film-old Lokesh Kanagaraj, shoot for which is currently under progress. Latest buzz is that the star has committed his next with director Magizh Thirumeni, who is known for his films like ‘Thadaiyara Thaakka’, ‘Meaghamann, and ‘Thadam’.
Reports suggest that Vijay’s film with Magizh, tentatively titled as ‘Thalapathy 65’ will be an action-packed entertainer just like the director’s earlier films. Vijay heard the script last week during the schedule break of his ongoing fil and was very impressed by it. They have decided to take the project forward and if all goes well, shoot for the same will be commencing by June 2020.
The news has come as a big surprise as Vijay was also in talks with directors like AR Murugadoss and Mohan Raja. But it is very heartening to learn that the star is willing to try something different rather than repeating the same old run-of-the mill stuff. Director Magizh has proved his potential in helming action films. His last release ‘Thadam’ was a big hit at the box office.
An official announcement regarding ‘Thalapathy 65’ is expected to be made soon..
