The buzz about Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagaram fame is he will be directing Thalapathy Vijay in his next. This has been doing the rounds for quite some time. At a recent function, Lokesh confirmed it somewhat indirectly. The grapevine has it that Vijay will be seen as a ruthless gangster in Thalapathy 64.
Meanwhile, if close sources are to be believed, two heroines Raashi Khanna and Rashmika Mandana of Geetha Govindam fame would be romancing Vijay in the film.
A source close to Raashi confirms that the makers have approached her and had initial talks. There were also rumours that Rashmika Mandana, who is making her debut with a Karthi film, may not be part of Thalapathy 64. Anirudh Ravichander, who scored for Vijay’s Kaththi in Murugadoss’ direction, is once again collaborating with him. Sathyan Sooryan will crank the camera.
One may recall that a picture of Vijay meeting Xavier Britto, the producer of the film, had gone viral online....
