Though the media is full of updates about the latest info on the film Thuppakki which signals the coming together of director A.R. Murugadoss and actor Vijay, it appears that nothing has so far been finalized about the film. Even the cast is yet to be completed, it is reported.
Initially, there were conflicting reports about who would be the producer of the film. It was first reported that ‘Kalaipuli’ Thaanu would be the producer of the film. Later, some sections of the press carried reports that it would be A.M. Ratnam would be producing the film on behalf of his Surya Movies instead of Thaanu as the film had ‘exchanged’ hands.
It is also said that Vijay would be donning a CBI officer’s role in the film. Reports also claimed that Vijay had started ‘pumping’ at the gym in order to increase his biceps and muscles so as to look ‘stronger’ on screen in order to suit the cop’s role he would be essaying in the film.
Vijay, meanwhile, has denied reports that he has started hitting the gym to prepare for his role in the film. “I regularly work out and do a lot of exercises; I’m not going to the gym in order to ‘prepare’ myself for any roles,” Vijay clarifies. It was also reported that Kajal Aggarwal has been signed up as his heroine in the film. Again, it also needs confirmation.
Until a formal announcement is made, things might continue to appear as fluid as they are!
