The shooting Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi's Thalapathy 64 is going in full swing and while we can't hide our excitement for this thriller, the film has landed into legal trouble as the police complaint has been filed against the crew for smoking inside the school campus. “The Section 4 of the COTPA (Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act) states that, ‘Smoking in public places is prohibited’. On the other hand, Section 6 (b) states that the sale or usage of cigarettes or any other tobacco product is prohibited within 100 yards of any educational institution; be it school, college or even a tuition centre’. The movie crew has shown such a lethargic attitude by smoking inside the school where countless number of disabled children get educated,” read the press release.
Talking about the film, it is produced by Xavier Britto under the banner XB Film Creators. The music of Thalapathy 64 will be composed by Anirudh Ravichander while the cinematography will be handled by Sathya Sooran. Watching Vijay Sethupathi and Thalapathy Vijay in one frame is expected to be one of the major highlights of this film. It is directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, who recently delivered a blockbuster in the form of Karthi's Kaithi. Interestingly, Kaithi clashed with Thalapathy Vijay's Bigil at the ticket windows.
The film will feature Vijay Sethupathi as the lead antagonist. Talking about his casting, a source earlier told a daily, “Vijay Sethupathi really liked the role he was offered, and he said a ‘yes’ immediately. Malavika also did a look test for her role, and was brought on board soon after that.” Thalapathy 64 is set to hit the screens on April 9, 2020, and will lock horns with Ranveer Singh's Deepika Padukone's '83 at the ticket windows.
