It's known that Tamil superstar Thalapathy Vijay and hit director AR Murugadoss have teamed up for the third time after the blockbuster success of Thuppakki and Kaththi. The film, tentatively titled Thalapathy 62 (62nd film of Vijay), will be jointly bankrolled by Sun Pictures and Lyca Productions.
Earlier, the makers had announced Keerthy Suresh's name as the leading heroine of the film.
And now, the makers have roped in none other than Varalaxmi Sarathkumar to portray a pivotal role in Thalapathy 62.
The makers took to their Twitter page to confirm the update on Monday. The announcement turned out to be a birthday gift for Varalaxmi Sarathkumar as Sarathkumar's daughter celebrated her 33rd birthday on Monday.
AR Rahman, who had composed music of Vijay's previous release, the blockbuster Mersal has been finalized as the music composer of the film.
Thalapathy 62 also marks Sun Pictures comeback to Tamil cinema after a seven year gap. Their last association was with director Shankar for his 2010 Rajinikanth blockbuster Enthiran.
