Even as movie goers and Vijay fans are reveling in the recently released Puli trailer, a reliable source has confirmed that Ilayathalapathy will be joining hands with exciting directors like SJ Surya and Prabhu Deva after Vijay 59.
If the news that Vijay and SJ Surya will collaborate again to dish out Kushi 2 isn't exciting enough, Prabhu Deva's plan to direct yet another Vijay starrer under his own production company will definitely stir your curiosity.
Yes, the choreographer turned actor turned director who made his Tamil directorial debut through Pokkiri has reportedly expressed his interest to work with Vijay for which the Kaththi star has already given his consent.
It is said that Prabhu Deva, after directing a chain of Hindi flicks, has decided to return to Kollywood as a director and producer, thanks to his recently launched production house, Prabhudeva Studios.
When approached Vijay with his plans of making a comeback, Vijay has assured him that after completing Vijay 59 and his upcoming film with SJ Surya, he would act under the direction of his old chum, Prabhu Deva.
Meanwhile, Puli trailer has given way to lot of comparisons between Puli and Baahubali. Check out the slides below to know what exactly we are referring to:
Rana's Character Compared With Sudeep's
An interesting article in Behindwoods.com has highlighted a lot of similarities between Puli trailer and Baahubali the movie. First up, Rana's character is compared with Sudeep's; Rana is a cruel leader of a kingdom called Magizhmathi and so is Sudeep, going by Puli trailer.
Baahubali's Shivu & Puli's Maru Dheeran
In Baahubali Shivu, the character played by Prabhas, comes forward to save the people of Magizhmathi. Without a doubt, Ilayathalapathy Vijay is the 'only ray of hope' for people living in this mysterious kingdom that has been showcased in Puli.
Vijay's Dual Role In Puli
Puli's trailer has confirmed that Vijay will play a dual role in Puli much like what Prabhas did in Baahubali. Is Vijay playing a father-son role? Let's wait and watch.
Similarities Between Tamannaah and Shruti Haasan's Characters
In Baahubali, Prabhas falls in love with Tamannaah, a girl who does not belong to the royal kin. Similarly, it looks like Vijay falls for a village girl in Shruti Haasan.
Nandita Compared To Anushka
Since Nandita Swetha did not feature in the neatly cut trailer, the buzz is that she might be playing a role with a surprise element much like how Anushka surprised us with her dreaded avatar in Baahubali.
Can Puli Perform Like A Tiger At The Box Office
Whatever these comparisons might indicate at, if Puli manages to perform like Baahubali at the box office, then we will have two South Indian movies finding themselves a place in the history of Indian cinema.
