According to sources, Vijay’s 52nd film is titled as Velayutham and will be directed by Jayam Raja.
Actor Vijay fondly being called as Ilaya Thalapathi, has been the box office king in Tamil Cinema from the gen-x actors and was even compared with the real box-office hero superstar Rajini.
But today Vijay is in a situation to prove that he is the real box office king and is in want of an immediate block buster hit as all his recent movies Azhagiya Tamil Magan , Kuruvi, Villu ,Vettaikkaran not crossing the upper limits of box office and especially the current release Sura turning out to be the big disaster at the box-office after being bench marked as a average collections.
At this stage, the latest buzz is that Vijay has kicked off his 52nd film Velayutham with Jayam Raja.
Heroine, other cast and crew details are yet to finalized. On official confirmation the movie is expected to start rolling on the end of July.
Jayam Raja has so far directed only re-make films and Vijay is also keen working with re-make films. But Vijay has to understand that the key success for any film big or small, story is important. A good example is the recent small budget movie “Angaadi Theru” with good story did very well in box-office.
