Bengaluru: The title for Vijay’s latest film Thalapathy 63 was revealed on Friday. Titled Bigil, the movie shows Vijay in two get-ups – one a young footballer and another, an old man wearing veshti (dhoti) and shirt. The two characters in the poster are set up in a background which seemingly resembles a fish market. The older man looks grim and menacing while the younger one looks confident and powerful.

 The film, directed by Atlee, is described to be a “sports action thriller.” Bigil is Vijay’s third collaboration with Atlee. The first two movies were Theri and Mersal.

The movie also has Nayanthara in the lead. Jackie Shroff, Kathir, Vivek, Daniel Balaji, Varsha Bollamma and Anandraj are few other actors in the movie.

 #WeWantT63ThiruvizhaUpdate was trending for hours on Twitter on Tuesday, as fans of the star were demanding updates on the upcoming film.

 Thalapathy 63 would be hitting the big screens during Deepavali. Thalapathy Vijay's previous film Sarkar, directed by AR Murugadoss, had released in the theatres during Deepavali last year. The movie had a fascinating run in the theatres across various regions.

 The movie is produced by AGS Entertainment.

 Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman has been roped in to compose music for the film and the responsibility of cinematography has been bestowed upon KG Vishnu of 'Mersal' fame.
