Thalapathy 64’s shooting is right now happening at Shimoga in Karnataka and the team is working on a rapid pace to release the film on April 9, 2020 for Tamil New Year, as planned. This Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial features an ensemble star cast that includes Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj, Kaithi fame Arjun Das, Gouri Kishan, Nasser, Prem Kumar, Sanjeev, Sriman, Ramya Subramaniam, and others. Even before the completion of Thalapathy 64, reports about the star actor’s 65th film has started doing the rounds.


Directors Magizh Thirumeni, Lokesh Kanagaraj and Vetri Maaran were earlier rumoured to helm Thalapathy 65, but we had denied those rumours after clarifying with our sources. One more director has now featured in the list of rumoured directors and it is none other than A.R.Murugadoss. Yes, it was speculated on social media that Thalapathy 65 will be directed by Murugadoss, thereby marking his fourth time collaboration with Vijay after Thuppakki, Kaththi and Sarkar.

However, when we checked with our sources, they denied the news and stated that the rumour is false. Vijay hasn’t taken a call on his next film’s director yet and he is completely focussed on the current film with Lokesh Kanagaraj. It looks like we will have to wait for a few more months to know who is going to direct Thalapathy 65! Rumours online also suggest that Sun Pictures is most likely to bankroll this mega biggie.
