After the blockbuster success of Theri, Tamil director Atlee and superstar Ilayathalapathy Vijay are all set to join hands for yet another action-entertainer. The film, tentatively Vijay 61 (the 61st film of Vijay's acting career) will be produced by Sri Thenandal Films.
Earlier, it was reported that South Indian superstar Nayanthara will feature in Vijay 61 as the female lead. However, the latest update is that the upcoming Vijay-starrer will have one more heroine along with the Raja Rani actress. If reports are to be believed, the makers have approached Kajal Aggarwal, the heroine of earlier Vijay blockbusters, Thuppakki and Jilla to play the second female lead in the film. An official announcement on the rest of the cast is expected to be out soon.
Meanwhile, the official teaser of Vijay's Bairavaa is slated to be revealed on Diwali. The film stars Keerthy Suresh as the female lead and will hit the screens on Pongal 2017.
