Social media has been abuzz with news that actor Vijay will be joining hands with director AR Murugadoss for what will be their third collaboration. Their last two movies together, Thuppakki and Kaththi were met with great success at the box office.
While the director himself has reportedly said he is not in a position to reveal anything about the project, the official announcement can be expected in the coming weeks.
Their last two outings saw movies dedicated to the army and to farmers. AR Murugadoss’s first collaboration with Vijay had come in 2012. The action-thriller ‘Thuppakki’ was about an army man on holiday, who fights terrorists threatening to attack the city of Mumbai.
Murugadoss then directed Vijay in ‘Kaththi’ which was about the unholy nexus between corporates and politicians. The movie dealt with the exploitation of farmers and the poor. The commercial success of these last two ventures, has naturally led to curiosity about the subject of their third collaboration.
Vijay is currently gearing up for a movie which will be directed by Atlee. The film will reportedly have Kajal Agarwal, Samantha and Jyothika as the female leads and Oscar winning music director AR Rahman will be composing the tunes. Director Murugadoss too is currently knee deep in a project, where he is wielding the megaphone for Mahesh Babu starrer ‘Sambhavami’.
