The forthcoming Vijay-starrer is Vamshi Paidipally's Varisu which will be released in theatres as a Pongal fare. Though the official release date has not been announced, the movie will hit the screens in January 2023. The bilingual flick will be released in Telugu under the title Vaarasudu.
Sarath Kumar, Prakash Raj, Prabhu, Srikanth and Jayasudha among others essay pivotal roles in the family drama which has Thaman composing music for the first time for a Vijay-starrer. Leading Telugu producer Dil Raju is bankrolling the film which is currently being shot at Vizag.
Prakash Raj, who plays a significant character in Varisu, has expressed excitement in working with Vijay after a long hiatus. While talking to a media outlet, the veteran actor said that it's been close to 15 years since the duo shared screen presence.
He said, "It's been a long gap. Varisu is an interesting movie. I'm not sure if I can say anything about the movie, but I'm happy that Vijay and I are back together." The duo was last seen together in Prabhu Deva's Villu which was released in 2009. The combination scenes between Vijay and Prakash Raj in Gilli, Sivakasi and Pokkiri were huge hits, and fans of Thalapathy are expecting nothing short of a big hit this time, too.
Prakash had played memorable roles in most of the projects helmed by Vamshi Paidipally. The latter's debut vehicle Munna had him essaying the role of a don, while Brindavanam had him playing a father who loves his daughter unconditionally.
He was seen in a light-hearted character in Thozha and Maharshi had him in the role of a struggling father who couldn't meet the expectations set by his son. It is interesting to wait and watch what Vamshi has offered Prakash to play in Varisu.
