Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s upcoming film, Bigil, is titled Whistle in Telugu. The movie will release on the 25th of this month as Diwali Special. They are releasing the film in Telugu and Tamil on the same day. The film has competition only from Karthi’s Khaidi in Telugu and Tamil. But then, Khaidi has no hype in Telugu. The movie is releasing in a whopping 700 screens across both the Telugu States, and with no considerable competition, the film is expected to take a good opening in the domestic markets. Upcoming Producer Mahesh S Koneru bagged the Telugu rights of the movie. The Telugu Producer of the film will be erecting a huge 50 feet cut out of the Tamil Superstar at the main theater Sandhya at RTC X Roads in Hyderabad. Such massive cutouts are reserved only for Telugu mass heroes. So, this has become the talk of the city.
Being directed by Atlee, the sports drama has Vijay playing a dual role. Vijay’s recent film, Adirindi, also directed by Atlee, managed good openings in both the Telugu States. It has to be seen if Vijay bags his first blockbuster in Telugu and if he will further increase his Telugu market with this film. Nayantara is romancing Vijay in the movie. Nayanthara reunited with Vijay 10 years after Villu. AR Rahman has scored music for the film, which is being bankrolled by AGS Entertainments. Atlee and Vijay previously worked together twice for Theri and Mersal. So this is the hattrick film in their combination.
