Thalapathy Vijay is currently waiting for the release of his next film, Master which is slated to release in theatres after the pandemic. This Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial is expected to be quite different from the usual style of Vijay films and it is expected to have a grand opening at the box office. The theatre owners have pinned high hopes on Master and let us hope that we get to see the film as soon as possible after the pandemic. Post Master, Vijay is most likely to team up with director A.R.Murugadoss for Thalapathy 65 and the fans are highly excited about the project.

Various rumours have been going on social media for the past few months regarding the project. Having said that, a section of the media reported that Thalapathy 65 could probably be the sequel of Thuppakki. However, A.R.Murugadoss has denied the speculation, adding that he will not do a sequel to his movies as it would limit the possibilities of exploring a new topic. In one of his recent Facebook live interactions, Murugadoss was asked if Thalapathy 65 will be the sequel of Thuppakki.

The blockbuster director said, “Not just Thuppakki, be it any film’s sequel, it will limit the flow of the story and we cannot explore beyond a point. When there is a fresh story and a new premise, you can explore and write scenes well. There were reports on a few websites saying that there are title problems for making a sequel, but that is not true. In a general perspective, it is just a creative decision to work on fresh scripts. But, a proper announcement regarding anything about the project should come only from the production house and that will only be right”.

This update from Murugadoss has made the fans happy and it has gone viral on social media. Thalapathy 65 will mark Vijay - A.R.Murugadoss’ fourth time collaboration after the blockbuster success of Thuppakki, Kaththi and Sarkar. Sun Pictures is said to be producing this project and the fans are eagerly waiting for the official announcement. Butta Bomma sensation Thaman is said to compose music for this mega biggie, but an official word is awaited. Currently, Murugadoss is said to be making use of this lockdown period to give final touches to the script. The fans have got huge expectations on this project and let us hope that the announcement is made very soon. Check out Murugadoss’ clarification regarding Thuppakki 2 below:
