While trade analysts are confident that ‘Thuppaki‘ will not release on announced date, August 15, director AR Murugadoss is equally positive that the film will release on August 15. It is further said that the film’s audio release function will take place in the second week of July.
AR Murugadoss expressed: ‘Thuppaki is ready to rock from August 15. Three more songs are pending to be shot. We’re currently shooting a track three hours away from Pune“. A romantic number between Vijay and Kajal Agarwal is being shot in Lonavala from the past two days.
Directed by AR Murugadoss a.k.a ARM, the film has music by Harris Jayaraj, cinematography by ace Santosh Sivan and sees Vidyut Jamwal and Jayaram in pivotal roles. Comic relief is by Sathyan. Vijay plays an encounter specialist in this high voltage action flick.
The crew is keen on releasing the film on the announced date. Whether they will manage to shoot three songs at the earliest and release ‘Thuppaki‘ on August 15 or see a delay like all big Tamil releases, only time will tell the tale.
‘Thuppaki‘ – From Vijay to Akshay Kumar
Immediately after the release of ‘Thuppaki‘, director AR Murugadoss will start the Hindi version of the film, which will have Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
Confirming this, AR Murugadoss says, “We are on the verge of completing Thuppaki. After that, I will start its Hindi version. I am eager to work with Akshay Kumar, who was thoroughly impressed after hearing the script.”
The director needs no introduction in Bollywood since his ‘Ghajini‘ starring Aamir Khan set a new collection record there. Hence expectations are running high on ‘Thuppaki‘ remake.
Interestingly, AR Murugadoss is toying with the idea of requesting Vijay to do a cameo in the Hindi version of ‘Thuppaki‘. It is to be noted that the ‘Ilayathalapathy’ Vijay made a guest appearance in ‘Rowdy Rathore‘, in the company of the same Akshay Kumar recently.
