TamilWire was the first to report that Jigarthanda director Karthik Subbaraj narrated a script to Ilayathalapathy Vijay few weeks back. Now, we have learnt that it was Vijay who called Karthik and asked him if he has any script that would suit him.
Sources say Rajinikanth’s teaming up with young filmmaker Pa Ranjith has indeed pressurized Vijay to deliver a quality project and hence the actor has been discussing with a lot of writers in the recent past.
Vijay 59 is currently under way in Goa and the team will continue shooting there till the first week fo December. The film is loosely based on the yesteryear hit film Chatriyan.
