Dharani, who is going to direct the Vijay starrer Kuruvi, has been making sincere attempts for a patch-up between the hero Vijay and heroine Trisha before the launch of the movie.
Kuruvi is the next movie of Vijay after his Diwali due Azhagiya Tamil Magan. Recently, the actor completed the final schedule of ATM and the post production work has also started. Now the official announcement regarding the launch of Kuruvi has been released to the press. As per the release, the film is going to produced by Udayanithi, son of the DMK minister and most powerful political personality in the state, M.K.Stalin.
The shooting for the film is likely to start sometime in mid-September as soon as Vijay completes the post production work of Azhagiya Tamil Magan.
Dharani will be directing this action cum adventure movie for the masses. Vijay will play Kuruvi, not the chirpy bird, but akin to a bird of a different type.
According to the sources, in this film, Vijay is a nice guy who lives in the Burma Bazaar (a market place in Chennai First Line Beach Road which is familiar for selling foreign goods, illegally brought from abroad), and makes a living as a 'Kuruvi', a chap who goes to Singapore or Malaysia or Dubai as a human courier and comes back with smuggled items. One day he is entrapped by the baddies, and how he uses his brains and his muscle power to come out from the trap is the crux of the movie.
A few days ago, it was rumoured that the heroine of the film, Trisha, has been ousted from the project due to her rifts with the hero and that Vidya Balan will be signed up for that role. The latest news is that the director has made all his efforts to convince the hero to sing a duet with Trisha. After seen the big smile in Trisha's face at a film function along with Vijay recently, it seems that the director has succeeded in his efforts.
When the correspondent contacted director Dharani, he said, "Kuruvi is something totally different, and features artists like Vijay, Trisha, Prakash Raj, and has music by Vidyasagar. I think I have divulged enough about the film for the moment..."
