The shooting of Thalapathy Vijay's Beast is progressing at a fast pace in Chennai and the team is shooting the talkie portions featuring Vijay and other actors in this schedule. The latest exciting update is that Yogi Babu has joined the sets of Beast and will start shooting for his portions from today (August 11). Yesterday, when one of the fans tagged Yogi Babu on Twitter and asked him his shoot plans for Beast, the comedy actor confirmed that he will start shooting for the film from today. Beast is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and the talented director made good use of Yogi Babu in his debut film, Kolamaavu Kokila and it is going to be interesting to see what the duo has in store for the audience in Beast.

Produced by Sun Pictures, Beast has music composed by Anirudh Ravichander who will be teaming up with Vijay for the third time after Kaththi and Master. Manoj Paramahamsa and R Nirmal have been assigned to take care of the cinematography and editing departments respectively. Beast features the young and happening sensation, Pooja Hegde, as the female lead and the film marks her return to Tamil cinema after 9 long years. Pooja's last film in Tamil was Mugamoodi which was also her debut film. The highlight aspect of Beast is the presence of acclaimed director Selvaraghavan, who will be acting in the film.

Selvaraghavan is expected to play one of the villains in the film and it is going to be exciting to see his face-off against Vijay. Beast also features Shine Tom Chacko, Aparna Das, VTV Ganesh, Liliput Faruqui, and others in supporting roles. As per the current plan, Beast is scheduled to release in theatres for next year's Pongal festival, but the plan might change, depending upon the Covid 19 situation.
