Tamil superstar Vijay will be seen next in the highly-anticipated Varisu releasing in theatres worldwide in January 2023 as a Pongal treat for fans everywhere. With the buzz for the upcoming family entertainer getting bigger and bigger every day, there is also a huge excitement among fans for the actor’s next big film, the tentatively titled Thalapathy 67, which was launched recently with a formal pooja in Chennai. The film, which will see Vijay and blockbuster filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj teaming up once again after their 2021 box-office money-spinner Master, will also mark the big screen reunion of the superstar with leading South Indian actress Trisha Krishnan after more than a decade, which has now been confirmed by actor Shaam, who is playing a key role in Varisu.
During an exclusive interview with Galatta, Shaam went on to talk about Trisha and how he remembers her from the days of Lesa Lesa (2002), in which they played the lead pair and was also the first film the actress had first signed officially. He stated, "Lesa Lesa was the film in which she started her career, but Mounam Pesiyadhe was her first release. The Trisha I had seen back then is still the same even now. That is something I feel... she is so humble, so kind, and so simple. At the same time, when I see her, I tell people, she's still stunning 20 years later in Ponniyin Selvan. She's still that gorgeous and beautiful, and that means she's that concentrating and focused on her career. She's taking care of herself and she's giving her body what it needs. She's taking her career so seriously and she's not losing it."
Shaam then spoke about Trisha's appearance at the pooja ceremony of Vijay's next, Thalapathy 67. He said, "Even now, many people had told me about her appearance at the Thalapathy 67 pooja and that Trisha is on a whole different plane, but she's completed 20 years in the film industry. The reason is her heart is pure. She's a very, very nice human being, and that gives her face that glow." This latest revelation from Shaam now officially confirms that Trisha is indeed a part of Thalapathy 67, and will see her sharing screen space once again with Vijay after they paired in films like Ghilli (2004), Thirupaachi (2005), Aathi (2006), and Kuruvi (2008).
