‘Rockstar’ Anirudh Ravichander will be composing the music for Vijay’s next film with ‘Maanagaram’ director Lokesh Kanagaraj. The cast and crew details for ‘Thalapathy 64’ was announced earlier today, and much to the excitement of the fans, the news of Anirudh once again joining hands with Vijay set the internet on fire. The pair has reunited after ‘Kaththi’, which released way back in 2014.
‘Kaththi’ not only turned out to be a musical hit, but also became one of the biggest blockbusters in Vijay’s career. Anirudh had thus far had a silent 2019, having just two releases (Jersey: Telugu) and (Thumba: Tamil – Single). It will be interesting to see if Anirudh and Vijay will be able to recreate the ‘Kaththi’ magic again.
The film will be written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, while Xavier Britto will bankroll the project under the production banner XB Film Creators.
Sathyan Sooryan has been signed to crank the camera and Philominraj will be taking care of the cuts. Vijay’s regular stuntman Silva will be handling the action sequences. The makers are planning to release the film by April 2020.
