Actor Vijay and filmmaker A.R. Murugadoss are set to team up for the third time later this year. According to a source, this yet-untitled Tamil project is likely to feature a leading Bollywood actress.
“It’s true that Murugadoss and Vijay are coming together for the third time. The project, in all probability, will go on the floors towards the end of this year. Talks have been initiated with a few Bollywood heroines including Sonakshi Sinha,” a source privy to the development told IANS.
Having already worked with Murugadoss twice in “Holiday: A Soldier Is Never off Duty” and “Akira”, Sonakshi is the front-runner for the leading lady’s role.
“Murugadoss approached Sonakshi because both of them understand each other very well. Nothing has been confirmed yet,” the source said.
The film will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions, the company which produced Murugadoss’s earlier film “Kaththi” with Vijay.
Vijay has just begun working on a yet-untitled Tamil project with director Atlee.
Murugadoss, on the other hand, is busy wrapping up a yet-untitled Telugu-Tamil bilingual project with Mahesh Babu.
