Notwithstanding the many things said about the film, it appears that ‘Pagalavan’, a film which was to bring together mercurial filmmaker Seeman and ‘Ilayathalapathy’ Vijay doesn’t appear to be taking off. In fact, the latest turn of incidents seemingly indicate that the film could well be abandoned.
Earlier, it was said that Vijay would start work on Seeman’s film after completing ‘Kaavalan’. The film released early this year and became a hit. Vijay then started work simultaneously on two projects viz., ‘Nanban’ by Shankar and ‘Velayudham’ by ‘Jayam’ Raja. Now that both the films have almost reached the completion stage, no word is being said about ‘Pagalavan’.
Vijay’s call-sheet diary is heavily packed till 2013. He would be starring in films to be made by R.B. Choudhary, Gautham Menon and Hari. He has also committed to work in a film to be made by Murugadoss. All these films would make him busy at least until the middle of the year 2013. It remains to be seen how would he allot dates for Seeman.
Vijay is said to have already rejected two ‘climaxes’ that Seeman reportedly narrated to him for their film. As such, it appears highly uncertain that the two would come together to make a film in the near future!
