The excitement surrounding Thalapathy 69, which is yet to be announced, is getting bigger by the day among Tamil superstar Vijay's fans everywhere as social media has been abuzz with a lot of chatter about who will direct the film. Vijay, fondly addressed by his fans and followers as 'Thalapathy', announced earlier this month that he will be entering politics full time after he completes his upcoming projects - The Greatest of All Time and a yet-to-be-announced venture, which is being called Thalapathy 69. With the news of Vijay's untitled last film generating a lot of buzz already, several leading Tamil filmmakers are said to be in contention to join hands with Vijay, and actor-director RJ Balaji's name is now doing the rounds on social media after he recently shared on his Naallanaa Murukku podcast on Spotify that he's been busy working on something important, leaving fans excited and speculating whether it could be Thalapathy 69

In the podcast episode that was streamed a couple of weeks back on February 19, RJ Balaji revealed that he has been engaged on an extremely important task since late January, while adding that he's also quite nervous even if it's something that he enjoys doing. He further informed that he along with his team have been completely engrossed with the work over the past two weeks. Explaining that he has had to re-review the circle he works with during those two weeks since he usually hangs out with a selected group of people, he shared that his complete focus and energy at present is invested on his latest writing project, which he revealed is being carried out at a place that is nearly 60kms away from his residence in order to not be disturbed by anyone.

Although no details are revealed for now about Thalapathy 69, there is a likelihood that Vijay could consider collaborating with RJ Balaji for the project since his LKG (2019) was well-received, with the film also turning out to be a big box office success. Whether Vijay is looking to do a political satire along the lines of RJ Balaji's LKG remains to be seen, and only time will tell whether the two beloved Tamil cinema stars will join hands for Thalapathy 69.
