Basking in the success of Mersal, actor Vijay is gearing up for his next project with filmmaker AR Murugadoss. The project will mark their third time collaboration after two blockbusters Thuppakki and Kaththi. Slated to go on the floors from December, the film has already set very high expectations from audiences and critics alike. Murugadoss is currently busy finalising the rest of the cast and crew. On Wednesday, the first major addition to the crew of the film happened in the form of cinematographer Girish Gangadharan, who has worked on projects such as Kali and Dulquer Salmaan starrer Solo, which released last month.

Tentatively titled Vijay 62, the genre of the project remains a mystery and it needs to be seen whether it will be another action entertainer along the lines of Murugadoss’s previous outing with Vijay. It is also rumoured that the film is being planned as next year’s Diwali release as Thuppakki and Kaththi both released for the festive occasion and turned out to be highly successful. Sources close to Murugadoss have hinted that he might go for a newcomer heroine this time as he has worked with all the current leading heroines and these include Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Akkineni and Rakul Preet Singh.

Following the debacle of Spyder, Murugadoss is under tremendous pressure and he definitely has to deliver with Vijay 62. He is currently busy locking the final version of the script and is set to commence the pre-production work from November.
