The shooting of Thalapathy 63 is progressing at a brisk pace in and around Chennai. Vijay will be seen in dual roles in this sports-based action entertainer and the makers are right now shooting for the portions involving the father Vijay character. Reports started to come out on social media that one of Vijay's character in the film would be called as Bigil and the speculated Michael could be the character name of Kathir, who is said to play Vijay's friend in the film.

However, when we checked with our sources, we were told that, both Michael and Bigil, are the names of the same Vijay, and which is expected to be that of the son's character. Our sources tell that Michael is the character's name and he is fondly addressed as Bigil by the people in his neighbourhood. The name of the other character is yet to be known and we might get clarity on this in the coming days.

But for now, we can be sure that both, Michael and Bigil are the names of the same Vijay character. The title and the first look poster of this Atlee directorial will be out on June 22, on the account of Vijay's birthday. Apart from Vijay and Kathir, Thalapathy 63 also has Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Vivekh, Yogi Babu, Devadarshini, Indhuja, and others. Stay tuned to this space for more updates.
