Lokesh, Vijay and Thanu

The shooting of Vijay's Beast, being directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, is going on at a brisk pace in Chennai. It is heard that the team will fly to Georgia once again to complete a major schedule there, and that the movie will be wrapped up in January. The star's next, tentatively titled Thalapathy 66, which will have Vamshi Paidipally at the helm, is expected to go on floors from April next year. 

Thaman is said to be composing music for the project. In an interview to a Telugu television channel, Vamshi had recently confirmed that an announcement on the film's female lead and other details will be made soon.          

Now, there are various speculation doing the rounds on social media about Vijay's project after Thalapathy 66. It is heard that Lokesh Kanagaraj is likely to wield the megaphone for the star's next again. The filmmaker is currently busy with Kamal Haasan's Vikram. If everything goes well, he might team up with Vijay for the second time after the blockbuster flick Master (streaming on Amazon Prime Video) which hit the screens earlier this year.

According to a source, the movie will be bankrolled by veteran producer Kalaippuli Thanu. Vijay last teamed up with him for Atlee's Theri (streaming on Amazon Prime Video and Sun NXT) which released in 2016. Thanu had earlier produced Vijay's Sachein (streaming on YouTube) which had hit the screens in 2005.

Meanwhile, it looks like Beast, as said earlier, might have a theatrical release on April 2022. Pooja Hegde plays the female lead in the project which has music by Anirudh Ravichander and action choreography by Anbariv.
