It is said that Briton Amy Jackson, basking in the glory of the box-office success of her latest film I, would be pairing up opposite Vijay in his next untitled film to be directed by Atlee of Raja Rani fame.
Vijay is presently starring in Puli directed by Chimbu Deven and which has Shruti Haasan and Hansika as the two heroines in it. Sridevi, former Bollywood and Kollywood queen, plays a prominent role in this fantasy venture whose shoot is said to have been wrapped up recently. Devi Sri Prasad is the music director of the film.
For Vijay’s 59th film which would be directed by Atlee, it was first said that Nayantara would be pairing up opposite him. It was then said that Bollywood’s Sonakshi Sinha, who debuted in Kollywood opposite superstar Rajinikanth in the hit film Lingaa, might pair up opposite Vijay.
Then Deepika Padukone’s name also did rounds. It was only later that it came to be known that neither Deepika nor Sonakshi would star in the film.
It is now said that Amy Jackson and Samantha (who already starred opposite Vijay in Kaththi) would be the two heroines opposite Vijay in Atlee’s new untitled film whose scripting process is going on. In all probability, Vijay might start work on Atlee’s film after April or May.
