Sayyeshaa has some interesting films in her kitty including Junga, Kadai Kutty Singam and Ghajinikanth.

The team of Vijay’s next project, tentatively titled Thalapathy 62, is currently being shot in Kolkata at breakneck speed. The team is said to be canning some action sequences under the supervision of Ram-Lakshman stunt choreographers. The film stars Keerthy Suresh as the leading lady and it’s her second time collaboration with Vijay after Bairavaa. According to the latest rumours doing the rounds, the film might feature another heroine and reports suggested that actress Sayyeshaa has been roped in. However, the Shivaay actress has denied being approached in the first place.

Talking to a popular online portal, Sayyeshaa said that she’d love to work with actor Vijay but clarified she hasn’t been approached for Thalapathy 62, which is being directed by AR Murugadoss. The film marks their third time collaboration after Thuppakki and Kaththi. Tipped to be another action-based social drama, the film will have music by AR Rahman, who has teamed up with Vijay for the second time in a row after last year’s blockbuster Mersal.

The project was officially launched with a puja in Chennai last month. Sun Pictures, best known for producing Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, is bankrolling the project on a lavish budget. While it has already been confirmed that Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, has been signed on for the project, editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film.
