Wednesday 26th October 2016 07:04 EDT

After weeks of speculations, Thenandal Films has confirmed that actor Ilayathalapathy Vijay's 61st venture will be directed by young director Atlee. The project has several big names attached to it; KV Vijayendra Prasad, noted screenplay writer and father of filmmaker SS Rajamouli, has written the script.

Vijay and Atlee delivered this year's second biggest hit 'Theri' earlier this year, as the film went on to become one of the biggest blockbusters at the worldwide box office. Hema Rukmani, chief executive officer of Sri Thenandal Films said, "This is our first film with a big hero like Vijay. We are proud of it. Atlee Kumar and Vijay's combo was successful earlier and we hope they will recreate the magic again." Makers of the film are yet to zero-in on the heroine, but if rumours are to be believed, Kajal Aggarwal and Nayanthara have been approached. More details on the cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
