Actress Zoya Afroz, who has so far worked in Hindi flicks, may team up with actor Shanmugapandian, son of veteran actor-politician Vijayakanth, in his upcoming revolutionary film Tamizhan Endru Sol.
"Zoya is almost finalized for the project, which will mark her Tamil debut. The makers are expected to officially announce the news in a week's time," a source from the film's unit told IANS, adding that actress Disha Patani is also under consideration for the role.
The film, which will mark Vijayakanth's comeback after five years, will feature him alongside his son in a full-length role.
Interestingly, it's Vijayakanth, known for blockbusters such as Captain Prabhakar, Chinna Gounder and Ramanaa, who will be playing the lead in the movie.
"It will be a period fantasy film that will emphasize on Tamil language. Vijayakanth will be playing a king from a long forgotten era," the source said.
Shanmugapandian's debut flick, Sagaptham, released under Vijayakanth's home banner, Captain Cine Creations tanked at the box office and received overwhelmingly negative reviews from almost all critics.
