Vijay and director Atlee's third collaboration, after the successful Theri and Mersal, has been titled Bigil and to mark his Birthday super special for his fans, Vijay dropped the first look posters on his social media profile.
The film features Vijay in different shades and roles, expected to be that of father and son, as is evident from the first look. An older Vijay with speckles of grey in his hair sports a menacing look with an 'aruval' at his feet, while the youngster avatar is seen behind him tossing a Manchester United football casually.
It is not clear yet if he is playing multiple roles like he did in Mersal, or if the poster depicts different stages in the life of the same character.
The film was tentatively called 'Thalapathy 63' after its announcement, and it's been titled Bigil.
The film is a sports drama, in which Vijay plays a football coach, with a supporting cast of Nayantara, Vivek, Kathir of Pariyerum Perumal fame, Yogi Babu and Robo Shankar.
AR Rahman will be composing music for the film and the cinematographer is KG Vishnu. The film is produced by AGS Entertainment, and is set for a Deepavali release.
Meanwhile, several theatres across Tamil Nadu have taken to screening the actor's earlier films such as Mersal, Theri, and Sarkar during his birthday week, with some shows exclusively for women and children.
