Vijay, who is busy with the shooting of Vijay 59 with director Atlee, is interestingly doing an intense research of MGR. Why? Sources say he is playing a die hard fan of MGR in the film. He has earlier played a similar kind of role in Vaseegara many years back.
Vijay is said to be taking cues from yesteryear MGR films to observe his mannerisms keenly to use a few of them in the film to perfection, says a source close to the unit.
The team will head to Goa for their next leg of shooting which will start soon. Amy Jackson and Samantha play the lead roles. GV Prakash composes music and this film marks his 50th project in the industry.
