The news we have been awaiting is finally here! Thalapathy 61 is all set with its special announcements. The first look will be out on June 22, the audio launch has been fixed for August and the film is set for a grand release in Diwali! Woohoo! Too many great announcements in one day. Ever since Rajiniaknth's 2.0 moved its release date from Diwali to Jan 2018, there were murmurs of Thalapathy 61 release. Now it's confirmed! Diwali just got epic. This film is Vijay's second collaboration with Atlee. This time they are on a whole new adventure. The film stars three female leads - Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen.

We are talking about Theri. The film featured Vijay in a completely different avatar. He was seen playing a father in this film, his heartwarming moments with Theri baby won over fans. It was far from his otherwise thara massy characters. The film also starred Amy Jackson and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. It went on to be one of Vijay's biggest hits.
Vijay was last seen in Bharathan's Bairavaa. The film released this Pongal. The film perormed decently at the box office, but it was a great hit as expected. The film was a typically cliched movie that offered nothing new to Vijay fans. The film starred Kerthy Suresh and Vijay for the first time.
While Rajini fans were disappointed that 2.0 was postponed to Jan 2018, we are sure Thalapathy's 61 grand Diwali release will make this festive season just as big and bright!
