Director Mani Ratnam has now officially declared that his upcoming film “ Ponniyin Selvan “ has been shelved due to some reasons. The film was expected to release in a budget of 100 crores with a huge star cast including Vijay, Mahesh Babu, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka etc. But the budget is said to be the reason behind the drop of the film (Mani Ratnam’s last release ‘Raavan’ was a big budget film , but it didn’t well at the box office. So the production houses are not intending to make a big budget movie with him ). However it was a chance for Ilayathalapathy to become the part of a great venture with the legend director Mani Ratnam. Let us hope that Vijay will join Mani Ratnam in the future.
There are new buzz in the kollywood that Director Ameer is planning a movie with the Kollywood King Ilayathalapathy Vijay titled as ‘ Kannabiran ‘. The film is going to be a mass entertainer and the script is designed to suit Vijay’s mass image. Vijay is playing the role of a protagonist. Ameer is famous for his mass films and he is a successful film maker in the Kollywood Film industry. His previous movies include Mounam Pesiyadhe with Surya, Raam with Jeeva, Paruthiveeran with Karthi and Aadhi Bhagavan with Jayam Ravi (2011 release). Both Ameer and Vijay are said to be successful commercial entertainers. So we can expect a huge mass movie from them.
Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Ileana are in Netherlands to shoot a song in Amsterdam for Nanban. The romantic track has been composed by Harris Jayaraj and is going to be one of the highlights in the film. Its heard that a portion of the song will be shot in Switzerland too. Other cast of Nanban includes Jeeva, Srikanth, Sathyaraj etc. Nanban is the remake of the bollywood blockbuster ‘3 idiots’ directed by Rajkumar Hirani and the leading roles played by Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi.
After Shankar’s ‘Nanban’ Vijay will play the leading role in the movie ‘Pagalavan’ directed by Seeman. Vijay’s role in the film will be a never seen before one and Seeman on his part has loaded the film with fiery dialogues that oozes fire. The mass hero image of Vijay is expected to rise several levels up after this film. There may be a delay for this film because the production house is still under consideration. Even though there is news that Kalaipuli Thanu will produce the film, it is not confirmed.
