Actor Vijay is currently shooting for Vijay 61 under Atlee’s direction in the outskirts of Chennai. Recently, a leaked picture from the shooting spot, in which Vijay was seen sporting a veshti, went viral on social media.
If rumours are to be believed, the Bairavaa actor is said to play the role of a cop in Vijay 61. When Atlee and Vijay collaborated for Theri, the actor portrayed the role of a doting father and an upright police officer. However, in Vijay 61, it is unclear whether Vijay is playing dual roles or not.
We had reported that Nithya Menen has been roped in to replace Jyothika, who backed out of the project due to undisclosed reasons. In recent developments, we hear that Nithya has joined the sets. After wrapping up the first schedule, the team is expected to go on a break.
Atlee and team are also planning to go to the US and UK to shoot some important sequences for the film. Vijay 61 boasts a stellar cast of Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal, Sathyaraj, SJ Suryah, Sathyan and Kovai Sarala in important roles. While KV Vijayendra Prasad of Baahubali fame has been roped in to write the story, AR Rahman will be composing for the flick.
