Thalapathy Vijay is totally busy in his career, with a handful of projects in the pipeline. As per the reports, the popular star is now all set to team up with hitmaker Atlee once again, for his 68th project.

However, it is confirmed that the project, which is expected to be Thalapathy Vijay's 68th outing in cinema, will not start rolling anytime soon. #Thalapathy68 will go on floors only after both Vijay and Atlee finish their current commitments. In that case, the film fanatics will have to wait for a long time, to get an official announcement on the same.
Thalapathy Vijay is currently busy with the shooting of his 66th outing, which has been tentatively titled #Thalapathy66. The Vamsi Paidipally directorial, which is touted to be a romantic thriller, is a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. Vijay is expected to join hands with Master director Lokesh Kanagaraj for his 67th film. #Thalapathy67 is expected to have an official launch on June 22, 2022, on the occasion of the star's birthday.
Atlee is currently busy with his debut Bollywood directorial venture, which features Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role.
