There has been a lot of buzz surrounding Tamil superstar Vijay's next film being called Thalapathy 69 after his ongoing project, The Greatest of All Time. Fondly addressed as 'Thalapathy' by his fans and followers, the leading Tamil actor had announced his decision to enter politics and subsequently bid farewell to cinema after his last film, which is said to be Thalapathy 69. Having said that, there's also been a big debate as to who will direct the coveted project, with the names of several leading Tamil cinema filmmakers said to be in contention to collaborate with Vijay among whom also includes National Award winner Vetri Maaran, who has been a fan favorite for a long time now. 

With a lot of speculations surrounding Thalapathy 69, reputed Tamil film producer Dr. Dhananjeyan Govind recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta to open up on why Vijay joining hands with Vetri Maaran wasn't a possibility. He explained, "There's no possibility for that to happen because Vetri Maaran sir already has commitments. He has to release Viduthalai Part 2. Next, most importantly, he has to start Vaadivaasal and the planning for the project is going on. The pre-production is progressing and he's overseeing the computer graphics and aerodynamics work being done in London." 

Dhananjeyan further stated, "He (Vetri Maaran) has a lot of involvement in Vaadivaasal and Suriya sir is waiting to begin the shooting. So, he can't leave all this and move onto another film, and he's not such a director. He will go according to his plan. He isn't the type of filmmaker who will suddenly do another film. He will travel in his own path. All this is media speculation, according to me. He's not in that list. He's clear about his next phase in his journey."
