With speculations rife surrounding the first official Thalapathy 67 announcement reportedly coming out from producer Lalit Kumar's 7 Screens Studio on January 26 on the occasion of Republic Day, popular Tamil films producer-distributor Dhananjayan recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta and informing that the first schedule of the Vijay-starrer has wrapped. He said, "The shooting has begun and they have completed one schedule. They are going to start the next schedule on January 20 and will be filming non-stop." The producer further went on to reveal that Vijay's Thalapathy 67 will be coming out in 2023, while also adding that Ajith Kumar's AK 62 and Kamal Haasan's Indian 2 too will be out in cinemas this year. Upon being queried whether there will be a box office clash this Diwali between any of these films, Dhananjayan stated, "As of now, it is being said that Indian 2 will be coming out as a Diwali release. If Indian 2 is releasing this Diwali, then this film (AK 62) will not be out because Lyca Productions is producing both ventures." It is to be noted that Lyca Productions is producing Ajith's AK 62, while jointly collaborating with Red Giant Movies for Kamal Haasan's Indian 2 and the one big common name among these two biggies and Thalapathy 67 is composer Anirudh Ravichander, who is set to be announced to be a part of the Vijay-starrer in the next few days.
