Putting rest to all the rumours floating around for the past few days, AGS Entertainment made it official on Sunday that Nayanthara will be the female lead in their upcoming project which has Thalapathy Vijay in the lead. This will be the second time that Vijay and Nayanthara would be seen together after their 2009 association for Prabhu Deva’s Villu, and will also be the second time that Nayanthara would work with Atlee after their successful combo in Raja Rani.
Archana Kalpathi, the creative producer of the film, put out a tweet saying that she is excited to see Vijay – Nayanthara combo on screen after a long time.
The shoot for this much-awaited project will go on floors in January. Touted to be a film based on the game of football, it will be shot across Chennai and London. Atlee is currently going through the casting process, trying out various actors for supporting roles in the film.
Oscar-winner AR Rahman will be completing his hattrick with Thalapathy Vijay here, after their two successive combinations in Mersal and Sarkar. GK Vishnu, who derived fantastic visuals in Mersal, will do the same here while Anl Arasu will take care of the stunt work.
