Vijay is currently in the outing with Tollywood director Vamshi Paidipally for the movie 'Varisu'. After this much-awaiting project, Vijay would join hands again with Lokesh Kanagaraj for the project that is tentatively named 'Thalapathy 67'.
The latest viral update is that popular actress Keerthy Suresh will romance Vijay for the third time after 'Bhairavaa' and 'Sarkar'. Earlier, it was buzzed that Trisha will be the leading lady in Thalapathy 67, and as Keerthy Suresh's name is now been touted for the same role, the perplexion of the fans would be subdued only by the official confirmation from the makers.
In Thalapathy 67, Vijay will most likely play a role of a 50-year-old gangster who will be locking horns with six villains and Keerthy Suresh will play the role of Vijay's wife. It is evident that the combo of Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj was successful in Master and for Thalapathy 67, Lokesh would rope in some of the legendary artists in the industry including Sanjay Dutt, Arjun, and Prithviraj Sukumaran.
On the work front, Keerthy Suresh is currently in the shooting of Maamannan and Bhola Shankar. Maamannan is helmed by Mari Selvaraj and Udhayanidhi Stalin plays the lead role. Bhola Shankar comes as the Telugu remake of Ajith's 'Vedalam' in which Chiranjeevi will be playing the lead role. Vijay's current project Varisu is bankrolled by Dil Raju under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Creations.
While Vijay plays the lead role, Rashmika Mandanna will be the leading lady and Prakash Raj, Sarathkumar, Shaam, Yogi Babu, Prabhu, Jayasudha, Srikanth, Khushbu and Ganesh Venkatraman will be playing crucial roles. Thaman is composing the music and the movie is scheduled to be released in theatres in January 2023 during the Pongal festival.
