A.R. Rahman scores the music of Vijay’s next film by Atlee

It has been reported that twin Oscar-winning music director A.R. Rahman would be scoring the music of actor Vijay’s next film which hasn’t been titled yet.

Following his Pongal release Bairavaa which opened to good response in theatres, Vijay would be starring again in Atlee Kumar’s film. It is now reported that the duo of Vijay and Atlee, which worked for the first time in last year’s hit film Theri (dubbed by critics and movie-goers as the ‘sophisticated’ remake of Vijayakanth’s hit film Chatriyan), is to work together again in a new film.

To be produced by Sri Thenandal Films, the heroine and other technicians to work in the film haven’t been finalized. Vadivelu has been roped in as the main comedian. It was earlier rumoured that Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal were in the reckoning to play Vijay’s heroine; it now turns out that after much consultations, Samanatha has been finalized to star in the film.

This would be Samantha’s third film with Vijay after hit films such as Kaththi and Their in the past. A.R. Rahman, who last scored the music of Vijay’s non-starter Azhagiya Tamizh Magan, gets to score the music of a Vijay-starrer after a long time. Debutant cinematographer Vishnu would be handling the camera for the film which has Ruben as its editor. It goes to floors in the second week of February.
