Thalapathy Vijay is set to play a 40-year-old criminal in the film, as stated by producer Lalit Kumar when asked about the film. He told reporters to wait for 10 days because after the first announcement, the rest will follow.
“Please wait 10 days.” All announcements would be made one at a time.”
The Tamil giant will star opposite Bollywood veteran Sanjay Dutt, as per a Pinkvilla report. Sanjay Dutt will serve as the antagonist in the upcoming project, rivaling Thalapathy’s character.
Thalapathy Vijay once again stars opposite actor Trisha Krishnan as the two are known as the ‘Apdi Pode’ couple from their previous project together. Since the film is from director Lokesh Kanagaraj, many fans are wondering if it is part of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe, otherwise known as LCU.
Actor Narain, who earlier worked in ‘Vikram’, revealed to a Malayalam channel in an interview that ‘Thalapathy 67’ will be part of LCU. However, no confirmation about the same has come from anyone involved in the production of the film.
During an exclusive press meet, the director revealed that a social media video is currently being worked on, which will be released on January 26, 2023. The dynamic duo of Thalapathy Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj had earlier worked together for the film ‘Master’, which turned out to be a blockbuster.
