'Thalapathy' Vijay is at present shooting his next big film, The Greatest Of All Time, in Russia under Venkat Prabhu's direction. With the upcoming "high-octane action entertainer" announced to be coming out in theatres worldwide on September 5, there were reports sometime back about late Tamil actor-politician 'Captain' Vijayakanth being brought back for the film using Artificial Intelligence (AI). In that light, Premalatha Vijayakanth, wife of the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) founder, has now opened up on his cameo in Vijay's The Greatest Of All Time sharing how Venkat Prabhu had approached her to discuss about it during an exclusive interview with Galatta

Speaking about Vijayakanth's cameo in Vijay's The Greatest Of All Time, Premalatha said, "Director Venkat Prabhu had discussed about it 5-6 times at our residence. He first spoke about it with Shanmuga Pandian as I was campaigning at the time. He requested Shanmuga Pandian about meeting me and visited our house. During our interaction, he shared about bringing back 'Captain' in The GOAT for a scene through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and requested for our permission. He then told about how Vijay too wanted  speak to me as he is currently shooting. I gave my nod because I'm thinking from the position of 'Captain', who isn't with us anymore. If he were still with us, what would he tell Vijay?" 

Premalatha added, "The world knows how Vijay was introduced in Senthoorapandi alongside 'Captain'. He had a lot of affection for director S. A. Chandrasekhar and Vijay. When there so many directors, SAC directed 'Captain' in 17 films. We both have a lot of respect for him. I have known everything right from the time 'Captain' gave his call sheet for Senthoorapandi. And, in such a situation, when they have come and requested for the use of AI to add 'Captain' in The GOAT, I'm thinking from his point of view rather than as Premalatha Vijayakanth. If he were with us, he would definitely not refuse this request and I too have said the same. Vijay has said he will meet us after the upcoming elections and I have informed that I will make a good decision." 

Premalatha further stated, "I've also known Venkat Prabhu since he was a child because we are acquainted with Ilaiyaraaja sir's family since the time of my marriage. I said to him, 'I've been seeing you since you were a child, Venkat. I cannot say no to you or Vijay. I'm seeing this from the place of 'Captain'. I'll return after the elections and I'll give you a good news when you come to see us.' Venkat Prabhu had shared about how it is Vijay's big wish to bring 'Captain' to the screen using AI and I too told him that I'll definitely give him a good news."
