Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s 64th film, #Thalapathy64, directed by Khaidi fame Lokesh Kanagaraj is progressing at a brisk pace. The makers are planning to complete the entire shooting by mid-February, and they are planning April 9th, 2020 Release for the film as Summer Special. Meanwhile, the Telugu rights of the movie were bagged by Mahesh S Koneru of East Coast Productions for a whopping 8.75 Crore.
Vijay is impressed with East Coast Productions for the release and handling of his previous film, Whistle, and offered the film rights to Mahesh this time as well. Our sources say that Mahesh took personal interest in promoting the film on par with star heroes here and also used his clout with Top distributors to ensure a big release thereby opening as well. After vexed up with several producers, Vijay decided to trust Mahesh only for his future projects. Young composer Anirudh Ravichander, who is known for his peppy and inventive tunes, will be scoring music for Vijay once again. Earlier, he had teamed up with Thalapathy in AR Murugadoss’s Kaththi.
