After Bigil’s mammoth success at the box office, actor Vijay is upbeat about his upcoming flick tentatively titled Thalapathy 64. The Sarkar actor has teamed up with young filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj for this film, which is tipped to be a gangster flick.
Earlier, the team had announced that Malayalam actor Antony Varghese has been roped in to play a negative role in Thalapathy 64. According to the latest reports, Antony Varghese has been replaced by Tamil actor Arjun Das, who won laurels for his performance in Lokesh’s Kaithi.
XB Film Creators, the film’s production house, officially announced his inclusion with a tweet. They wrote, “Team #Thalapathy64 welcomes the super Talented @iam_arjundas on board! #ArjunDasJoinsThalapathy64 (sic)”
Confirming the same, Arjun Das, in an interview to Times of India revealed that he will shoot for Thalapathy 64 from the second week of December. An elated Arjun said, “It is a dream-come-true moment to work with Vijay sir so early in my career. I will be forever grateful to Lokesh for casting me in the film. I am having mixed emotions; the feeling will sink in only when I begin shooting for the film.”
He further added that the offer came as a total surprise and stated, “I got a call from Lokesh one day. He simply said, ‘Vaa machi’. When Lokesh calls you, you don’t ask any questions. I am on board.”
Arjun Das further revealed that he will not sign any more films until he completes Thalapathy 64. His films, Kumki 2 and Andhagaaram are ready for release.
