Vijay's Father SA Chandrasekhar, who was supposed to produce the forthcoming Tamil movie to be directed by AR Murugadoss, has backed out of producing the film. Now, it looks like Kalaipuli S Dhanu has come forward to take up the mega-budget project.
Sources say that just when people thought that Vijay and AR Murugadoss' forthcoming movie, which is reportedly titled Thupaki, is gearing up for the launch, there emerged a surprising news of change hands. It is said that the filmmaker demanded Rs 12 crore as a remuneration to helm the project and he refused to cut down his salary.
SA Chandrasekhar was not ready to pay the hefty amount to AR Murugadoss and decided to opt out of Tupaki. This is when, Kalaipuli S Dhanu came into the picture. It may be recalled that the producer had signed Vijay for the film to be directed by Seeman, but unfortunately the proposed project did not take off.
Thupaki starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal will be launched at the Thiruchendur Murugan temple, one of the six abodes of Lord Muruga.
