The second schedule of Vijay 58 will be happening in Chennai and not in Mysore, as reported earlier. There were reports doing the rounds that the team got special permission to shoot in Mysore's Lalita Mahal where the famous Muthu’flashback portions were shot.
But now, sources close to the unit confirm that there is no such schedule and all these are speculations by various fan clubs of the Vijay who are very excited about the film. Buzz is that Vijay is not playing a dwarf character as a section of the media has written.
Sify.com understands that the next schedule will start in Chennai and then move over to Andhra in February. In March the unit plans to shoot some important scenes in Kerala's lush green locales and another small schedule in Punjab. Vijay58 wll be shot over 130 days and will be Ilayathalapathy's biggest film as far as budgets go.

And one of them will be zeroed in by Pongal when Vijay himself will announce the title. The film has Shruti Haasan playing the female lead along with Hansika, Sridevi, Sudheep and others.
