Well now, after speculations about her inclusion in the film, fans and followers of both the leading actors are highly elated and can’t wait to see their chemistry on the big screen when #Thalapathy65 releases. Notably, the Vijay-starrer directed by Nelson Dilipkumar will mark Pooja Hegde’s comeback to Kollywood after almost 10 years of her debut film Mugamoodi (2012).
On a related note, the actress has a slew of projects in the making including Telugu films Radhe Shyam with Prabhas, Most Eligible Bachelor with Akhil Akkineni, Chiranjeevi-Ram Charan’s Acharya and Bollywood film Cirkus, which also stars Ranveer Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez and Varun Sharma.
Coming back to #Thalapathy65, if reports are to be believed, Bollywood’s versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui might play the antagonist in the highly anticipated film. Notably, the actor’s maiden (and previous) venture in Kollywood was Rajinikanth’s Petta (2019). Anjaan actor Vidyut Jamwal is also said to be playing a key role in the film. However, there is no official confirmation regarding the duo’s inclusion.
The technical team of #Thalapathy65 includes music composer Anirudh Ravichander and Nanban cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa.
