Anirudh was supposed to be the music director of Vijay's next film but the buzz is that the young music director has his hands full and will most probably sign the Ajith-Siva film for Satyajyothi. After all, he cannot do multiple films at the same time.

And now reliable sources in the industry say that AR Rahman is the frontrunner to score music for Thalapathy Vijay’s new film (Thalapathy 62) with AR Murugadoss.

“Murugadoss and AR Rahman are yet to sit for a formal script narration. As the shoot will be completed within six months, Murugadoss wants to make sure that Rahman should be free and deliver the songs within the stipulated time”, said a source close to the team.

Murugadoss and Rahman had earlier previously worked in the Hindi version of Ghajini. To be produced by Sun Pictures, Girish Gangadharan of Angamaly Diaries fame will be cranking the camera for the film.

The principal shoot of the yet-untitled film will begin in January 2018 and Murugadoss is planning to lock the rest of the cast and crew in December.
