AR Murugadoss and writed Jeyamohan are currently working on the screenplay of Thalapathy 62.

Known for his work on films such as Naan Kadavul, Angadi Theru and Papanasam among others, well-known writer Jeyamohan has been roped in for Vijay - AR Murugadoss project, which recently went on the floors. Apparently, Jeyamohan was approached a year ago and he immediately came on board and is said to have already penned the dialogues. He’s currently overseeing the screenplay with Murugadoss. “He wrote the dialogues nearly a year ago. He and Murugadoss sat together and made changes to arrive at the final version,” a source told Hindustan Times.

The project was officially launched with a pooja last week in Chennai. The launch ceremony was followed by regular shooting which will continue for two days before the team will take a break and reunite later from next month to shoot non-stop. Sun Pictures, best known for producing Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, will bankroll the project on a lavish budget. It was recently announced that double Oscar-winning composer A.R Rahman has been officially signed on for the project, which will mark his reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini.

Rahman’s work in Mersal made it one of the most loved Tamil albums of last year. The film was supposed to happen even before Theri, but for reasons unknown it was delayed and is finally taking shape. 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, it has been learnt that well-known editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film.

All eyes are on Thalapathy 62 as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high. Two of Vijay’s best films in recent years have come from Murugadoss and it naturally has built high anticipation around their next project. Keerthy Suresh has been finalised as the leading lady. It is believed that the project is being planned as a Diwali 2018 release and it might lock horns with Ajith’s Viswasam at the box-office.
