Without a doubt, AR Murugadoss is one of the most sought after filmmakers in India at the moment. This being the case, isn't it a smart move to put the director on the spot, while expecting a favourable answer from him?
Famed director-producer and father of Ilayathalapathy Vijay, SA Chandrasekhar did exactly that when he almost persuaded Murugadoss into saying that his next Tamil film will be with none other than Vijay.
At a recent award function organized by Behindwoods, SA Chandrasekhar went on to say that Murugadoss' next Tamil film should once again be with Vijay and that's what he desires.
Responding to his requisition, the Kaththi director acknowledged him, in front of a massive crowd, by saying that his upcoming Tamil movie would feature Ilayathalapathy Vijay.
If SA Chandrasekhar's wish comes alive, it would effectively lead into AR Murugadoss' third straight collaboration with Vijay as his previous two Tamil films as a director were Thuppakki and Kaththi.
As both Thuppakki and Kaththi were massive box office successes, Murugadoss' third film with Vijay could give rise to a gigantic expectations from fans and movie goers.
The Ghajini director is currently working on his Hindi flick Akira starring Sonakshi Sinha and Konkona Sen Sharma in lead roles, post which he might start his Tamil project with Vijay.
