Atlee has made heads turn across the nation with top Bollywood personalities showering praises on the hit director ever since the Bigil trailer dropped last month among whom were Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan to name a few. There have been strong speculations that Atlee will next be collaborating with Shah Rukh Khan for a film, which many expect to be announced officially sometime soon. It remains to be seen when and how his romantic script for Vijay evolves considering the Tamil superstar is at present working on the exciting Thalapathy 64, under Kaithi director Lokesh Kanagaraj. As fans will know, Vijay kicked off his career in romantic films and was last seen in two ventures in the genre in the 2000s namely Sachein and Kaavalan. It will be interesting to witness him in action once again in a love story and it all now depends on when such a project turns to fruition.
