According to reports, the film took off at Kalighat Kali Temple in Kolkata on Monday. The Tamil flick hit the floors without a fanfare and a muhurat was performed to mark the beginning of the shooting of the untitled flick. After filming for a week, the team will come to Chennai to shoot the next schedule.
Vijay will be seen in dual roles after a long time in the flick. This is his second movie with AR Murugadoss after Thuppakki. Their earlier movie was a Blockbuster and it is currently being remade in Hindi with Akshay Kumar in the lead role. It had done earth-shattering business and garnered appreciation from various quarters. Hence, the expectations are high from the upcoming flick.
For the first time, Samantha will be pairing up with Vijay. Young sensation Anirudh Ravichander will be composing music for the film. He had tweeted, "Happy to announce that I will be scoring the music for Ilayathalapathy film directed by AR Murugadoss. Songs are coming out great."
