Vijay's next film - Thalapathy 65 was officially launched on March 31 and the fans were highly delighted about the development. Vijay, director Nelson Dilipkumar, and the main crew took part in the pooja event. The film which is to be produced by Kalanithi Maran's Sun Pictures, will have music scored by Anirudh Ravichander. The young rockstar has had a fantastic track record with both Thalapathy Vijay and director Nelson (through Kolamaavu Kokila and Doctor) and we can expect him to deliver a chartbuster album this time, as well. Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Nanban fame cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa will be handling the visuals, while the editing and art direction departments will be headed by R Nirmal and drk Kiran respectively. Popular stunt directors duo, Anbariv will be choreographing the stunts.

The shooting of the film is expected to begin on a full fledged note after the Tamil Nadu State Elections and further details are awaited. The young and happening Pooja Hegde would be seen as the female lead in Thalapathy 65 and it marks her return to Tamil cinema after 9 long years. Pooja had made her acting debut only in Tamil cinema through Jiiva's Mugamoodi, but never acted in any other movie since then. With Thalapathy 65, she will be looking forward to a solid comeback and let us see how things pan out. The makers are yet to make an announcement regarding the film's villain and the fans are eagerly waiting for that announcement.

Having said that, recently a section of media speculated that Bollywood actor Vidyut Jammwal would be playing the antagonist in the film. The fans were quite excited about this speculation as the duo have already worked together in the blockbuster hit, Thuppakki. However, Vidyut Jammwal clarified that the news is not true. The Thuppakki villain took to his Twitter page to deny the speculation and he called the news to be false. Vidyut's tweet read, "I AM WAITING ,and would love to.. But this news is false". Now that Vidyut has given a clear picture about the topic, let us wait for an official announcement from the makers of Thalapathy 65.

Notable big stars like Jackie Shroff and Vijay Sethupathi were the villains in Vijay's recent films and let us see who gets to lock horns against the star hero in Thalapathy 65. For now, check out Vidyut Jammwal's clarification statement regarding Thalapathy 65 here:
