Santhosh Narayanan, who got the mega-offer to compose music of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming Pa. Ranjith-directed Kabali, has landed up yet another major offer by getting signed up to score the music of Vijay’s upcoming film which would also be the 60th film in the latter’s career.
Bharathan, who made the not-so-successful Vijay-Shriya Saran starrer Azhagiya Tamizh Magan a few years back, would be directing Vijay in the untitled film. As the shoot of Vijay’s upcoming film Theri directed by Atlee has reached its last stages, Bharathan has been speeding up the work of choosing his technicians and artistes.
Vijay surprised his fans by asking Bharathan to direct another film for him after the not-so-memorable Azhagiya Tamizh Magan. Santhosh Narayanan would be the music director of this untitled film while K.L. Praveen would be the editor.
It is significant to note that Bharathan has chosen the duo of Santhosh and Praveen, who have been working in Rajini’s Kabali.
Kajal Aggarwal, who played Vijay’s heroine in Thuppakki and Jilla, was earlier in the reckoning as the heroine of the film but Bharathan is now said to be hunting for a different heroine.
