Director Hari is known for his mass masala films like Singam, Samy and Singam II. Currently, the director is busy with the pre-production work of Singam III with Suriya and soon, he might be directing Ilayathalapathy Vijay.
According to sources, Vijay and Hari have interacted many times and talked about joining together for a possible project but due to their prior commitments, it didn’t happen.
It is said that Barathan, the director who made Azhagiya Tamizh Magan with Vijay and also penned the dialogues for Ghilli has written a script for the actor. Though Vijay has liked the script, he wanted it to be directed by some other film maker and when asked, Hari is said to have readily given his nod.
The new project will be produced by Vijay Productions.
