Yesterday, 24th February, we had exclusively revealed to you that not one, not two, but as many as three top current leading ladies of Indian cinema are in the race to star opposite Thalapathy Vijay in his 65th film. After having spoken to renowned industry tracker and trade analyst Ramesh Bala, BollywoodLife had exclusively revealed that the makers of Thalapathy 65 are keen to cast either Rashmika Mandanna, Kiara Advani or Pooja Hegde as the leading lady opposite Vijay in the movie. And now, after having another word with Ramesh Bala, we've got another massive update for you about when the shoot of Thalapathy 65 islikely to commence.
Apparently, the shoot of Thalapathy 65 is expected to begin from April onward with the cast and crew. “The shooting itself is going to start only in April, I think. So, expecting the trailer and all would be too premature (we had also inquired whether there's any word of when the Thalapathy 65 trailer could arrive) right now, it's too early. I heard that there is one guy, Manoj Parahamsa, who's a popular DOP (cinematographer)...(based on that) the shoot should start in April,” said Ramesh Bala.
Opening up earlier on the heroine of Vijay's Thalapahty 65 and when the makers are likely to drop her name, he had disclosed, “I know they're looking at three heroines, Rashmika Mandanna, Pooja Hegde and Kiara Advani, and I think they have finalised one. Usually, they finalise it (the lead actress) very close to the shooting date or even if they finalise it (earlier), they only announce it close to when the shooting begins, that's how they operate.”
Thalapathy 65 will be directed by Nelson Dilipkumar of Kolamavu Kokila fame. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, popular for his roles in Bollywood, but having also tasted success in Kollywood with Rajinikanth's Petta, is touted to have been zeroed in as the main antagonist of the film.
