Chennai: Vijay's upcoming Tamil film, currently named to as Thalapathy 63, seems to have got bigger and better. Last month we reported that Jackie Shroff would be seen playing a negative role and he is now in Chennai shooting for his character. 

Now there are a few reports doing the rounds that suggest that Shah Rukh Khan will be playing the role of a baddie and would appear just before the climax. However, no confirmation has been given from the superstar or Vijay's side.


The reports also suggested that Khan would have to shoot for about four-five days to complete his portion in the movie. These reports surfaced when Khan was spotted next to Atlee at an IPL match in Chennai.

Khan is a familiar face in South Indian cinema especially after Chennai Express with Deepika Padukone. He is also very popular with the Tamil audience although he has not acted in any Tamil film so far. His films such as Happy New Year and Ra One were also dubbed in Tamil to cater to his South Indian fans. 

A Rajinikanth fan, SRK has worked with Tamil superstars Kamal Haasan in Hey Ram and Ajith Kumar in his Hindi film Asoka, and is now set to star in the Atlee Kumar film, Thalapathy 63.
