It’s final now. After wrapping up his current projects ‘Velayudham’ and ‘Nanban’ directed by ‘Jayam’ Raja and Shankar respectively in that order, actor Vijay has committed himself to do a film under the direction of A.R. Murugadoss (ARM). Soon after completing his upcoming film ‘7aam Arivu’ starring Suriya and Shruti Haasan in the lead, ARM would be starting work on the Vijay-starrer.
It is also said that either Priyanka Chopra (who had earlier paired up opposite Vijay for ‘Thamizhan’ a few years back) or Sonam Kapoor might be roped in as Vijay’s heroine in the film, which is as yet untitled. Sources close to the director say that in case both Priyanka and Sonam become unavailable for selection, a top Mumbai-based model might be introduced as heroine opposite Vijay.
The film, set in the backdrop of Mumbai, will have Vijay traveling to Mumbai and would trace his life beyond that in the Western Metropolis. As the script is about the various things which are typically Mumbai in nature, the director is said to be looking for a Mumbaikar as heroine. As such, the possibility of casting either Asin or Shruti Haasan is also not ruled out, it is learnt.
Quizzed about this, ARM said that he’d first wrap up ‘7aam Arivu’ and would then speak in detail about his project which would have Vijay in the lead.
