If sources are to be believed, Ilayathalapathy Vijay will be seen doing something similar to what Thala Ajith did in Yennai Arindhaal in his upcoming film Vijay 59, directed by Atlee.
Speculations are rife that Vijay will be playing a father in his 59th film and that the story lines of Yennai Arindhaal and Vijay 59 have a lot in common.
It is to be noted that Vijay has never played an on-screen father. The only film in which he came close to being one is Priyamaanavale which released in the year 2000.
Sources say that Vijay, for the first time, will be seen portraying the role of a fully fledged father in Atlee's movie which has Samantha and Amy Jackson playing female leads.
Meanwhile, Puli's stunt choreographer Super Subbarayan has revealed some interesting information on the movie's fight sequences and how major part of the schedule was assigned only to get the gravity defying stunts right.
With the shooting of Puli completed, Vijay is currently dubbing for the same post which he will fly to the USA along with his family to take a much deserved break.
The shooting of Vijay 59 is expected to start next month once the star actor returns from the Land of Liberty. Stay tuned for further updates.
