Thalapathy 65: Vijay to team up with Soorarai Pottru director Sudha Kongara next?
Though Vijay’s new film ‘Master’ is still on the floors, talks about his next (Thalapathy 65) has already begun. Directors like Atlee, AR Murugadoss and Mohan Rajan were initially interested in doing mass entertainers with Vijay. However, the actor is now said to be more keen on doing content oriented films. Following that, names like Vetrimaaran and Magizh Thirumeni emerged online. Pandiraj was also said to be in talks for a rural-based family entertainer.
More recent reports suggest that director Sudha Kongara has pitched an interesting subject to Vijay. Though the actor is yet to sign the dotted lines, he seems to have been impressed by the storyline and his character. If Vijay agrees to be part of the film, it will be the first time he will be working with a woman filmmaker.
Sudha Kongara, a former associate of Mani Ratnam, is noted for helming the bilingual boxing film ‘Irudhi Suttru’ aka ‘Saala Khadoos’ (Hindi). She also remade the film in Telugu as ‘Guru’. She is currently working on ‘Soorarai Pottru’, an ambitious film that has Suriya in the lead. If things turn out well, Sudha’s film with Vijay will be produced by Sun Pictures.
Official announcement regarding ‘Thalapathy 65’ is expected to be made in February.
