Reports say that Vijay’s upcoming film, which is directed by Atlee of Raja Rani fame and which pits him opposite Samantha for the second time after last year’s Kaththi, has been titled as Thaarumaaru.
Vijay’s last film Puli, billed as a fantasy adventure by director Chimbu Deven, failed to click at the box-office. Putting that disappointment aside, Vijay has started to work in his next film which was originally titled as Khakee. The crew had earlier informed that the title, which had already been registered with the Producers’ Council, would be changed in future.
Thought the most of the shoot of the film had been wrapped up, the crew remained undecided about the film’s title. It considered titles such as Chatriyan, Veeran, etc. before finally zeroing in on Thaarumaaru.
It may be recalled that one of Jiiva’s earlier films was first titled as Thaarumaaru but it underwent change in its title when it finally hit the screens. The crew feels that as Vijay plays a cop in the film, the title would be appropriate. A formal announcement about the change of title from Khakee to Thaarumaaru would be made soon.
