Vijay 59 is not a remake of Vijayakanth’s SathriyanPublished: June 30, 2015
While Vijay has now completed wrapping up with Puli, he is now involved in the photo shoot of his upcoming film tentatively titled ‘Vijay 59’ directed by Atlee and produced by Kalaipuli S Dhanu. The film stars Samantha and Amy Jackson in lead roles with lots of interesting star-cast. While the film was recently launched here in Chennai, there were some buzzes that it could be a remake of Vijayakanth’s Sathriyan, which was directed by Subash and produced and scripted by Manirathnam. It was later heard that Vijay might be playing a police officer and Amy Jackson might be playing his wife and Samantha as a college student. However, the close sources to Atlee and Vijay 59 team has been claiming that there is no such truth about it.
A huge set work of Rs.3Crore has been erected in the backdrops of Binny Mills and shooting will start from tomorrow.
GV Prakash has been simultaneously signing lots of promising music directors including AR Rahman and Deva for various musical genres.
