Thalapathy Vijay is currently shooting for his 63rd film directed by Atlee in which he will be seen as the coach of the Tamil Nadu Women's Football Team. The makers are in the fourth schedule and the film is targetted to hit the screens for Diwali 2019. The first look and the title of this sports-based family entertainer are expected to be out on June 22, on the star actor's birthday.

Having said that, all eyes are on his next big project, Thalapathy 64! Well, we have got some breaking details on this project and it sure does sound super exciting. Our little birdie hints that the young new gen filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagaram fame has narrated a story to Vijay and the star has indeed liked it.

Yes, we also hear that Vijay is yet to sign the project. Few other directors are also said to be in contention to helm the 64th project, but it is hinted that Lokesh is the front runner. In addition, it is said that the project is in very nascent stages and will take some time to firm up. Our sources close to the team state that the final decision might be made and announced on or after Vijay's birthday. However, this definitely looks exciting and it is going to be an interesting development to see Vijay team up with a young talent.

On the directorial front, Lokesh recently wrapped the shooting of his next film, Kaithi, which has Karthi in the lead role. This intense action thriller is in the post-production stages right now and it is expected to be released in the month of  July.
