Vijay has signed up to do a new film with AVM, but not the makers of Shivaji. The film is being produced by M Balasubramanian and B Gurunath Meiyappan, who headed for the 4th split of AVM Productions.
Balasubramanian got his share from the AVM studios a couple of years ago and decided to start new films in the new banner (AVM Studios) under his supervision. He had already paid the entire amount to Vijay as advance at the time of the release his Aadhi! That time Vijay had shown great interest in remaking the Superstar's Blockbuster Murattukkaalai, produced under the same banner 28 years ago. But now it seems that the actor is interested in making the film based on a fresh script.
In a press release, Balasubramanian said, "I'm happy to announce that AVM, one of the most prestigious banners in the country is going to make a big budget entertainment extravaganza with Ilayathalapathy Vijay. It is Vijay's first film under the AVM banner. The director and other technical details of AVM film will be expected soon."
This film will start rolling by the end of the year after Vijay completes his present assignments- Udayanidhi Stalin's Dharani directed Kuruvi and Ayngaran's new film to be directed by Prabhu Deva.
