He’s seen success unlike any other filmmaker in recent times.

Director Atlee struck the jackpot in 2013 in his debut film, Raja Rani, starring Arya, Nayanthara, Jai and Nazriya Nazim.

He then followed it up with yet another rousing and a bigger success in the form of Theri, which had ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay along with Samantha Akkineni and Amy Jackson.

With two hits already under his belt, Atlee was determined to make it a hat-trick and achieved his target with Mersal last year yet again with Vijay in the lead role along with Nithya Menen, Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal.

Since his Mersal, fans have been wondering what Atlee could be planning next with many speculating the young filmmaker would team up once again with Vijay.

Meanwhile, Atlee had participated as a special guest in an event organized by a private college in the city. When queried on what he would do next, the director revealed he was going to make a Telugu film with a big star. Furthermore, he had reportedly requested fans to wait for few more days as discussions on the project were currently ongoing. 

There was a debate a while back that Atlee could collaborate with Baahubali star Prabhas for a film. Whether the two are coming together shall be known in the days ahead. 

It must be noted Atlee has reportedly also registered the "Aalaporaan Thamizhan" title from his song in Mersal at the film chamber. 

Atlee's next in Telugu is quite a bit of a surprise considering many were under the impression he would be making a Tamil film. Looks like we will have to wait to see what the talented director has planned next.
