Even as Ilayathalapathy Vijay has just started shooting for his movie with director Atlee, speculations are rife that he is in serious talks with director AR Murugadoss for his next film.
The latest buzz in the industry is that the talks have made some progress, and Murugadoss has signed Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha as the female lead for the film, which is tentatively titled Vijay 62. If rumours come true, it will mark her second film in Kollywood.
Sonakshi made her debut in Tamil in 2014 with Linga, which had superstar Rajinikanth in the lead role. Meanwhile, it will also be her second collaboration with Murugadoss as last year the actor-director duo worked together in a film titled Akira. The film was the remake of Tamil hit film Mouna Guru.
