A grand football stadium set has been erected for Thalapathy 63 in EVP Studios located at the outskirts of Chennai city.
Sources say that director Atlee is planning to shoot important match scenes from the film on the sets for the next fifty days. Billed as a sports action entertainer, Vijay plays a football coach who trains a local women team to secure the prestigious trophy.
After a small break, the shoot is likely to resume this week in the EVP Studios. Produced by AGS Entertainment, Nayanthara plays the romantic interest of Vijay in the film which also has an ensemble of actors including Kathir, Jackie Shroff, Vivek, Yogi Babu, Daniel Balaji, and Anandaraj.
AR Rahman is composing the music for the film and GK Vishnu cranks the camera. The yet-untitled biggie is scheduled to hit the screens on Diwali 2019.
