Champion, Jersey, Gopichand biopic: South cinema bets big on sports

Our sources say that Thalapathy Vijay has allocated 120 days for his next with director Lokesh Kanagaraj of ‘Maanagaram’ fame. 

Though many leading directors narrated the basic plot to Vijay, the actor politely turned down their scripts in the first sitting itself. The actor is said to be hooked by the one-liners of Lokesh Kanagaraj and Vinoth but as the latter has signed a two-film deal with Ajith, Vijay has immediately given nod to the former.

Lokesh is said to have also shown the glimpse of his upcoming film ‘Kaithi’ starring Karthi and our sources say that Vijay was bowled over by the making and he even impressed with the storyline of the film. 

The film is likely to be bankrolled by BV Combines which produced films like Rasigan and Sendhoorapandi with Vijay. Jagadish and Lalith of 7 Screen Studios have been appointed as the line producers of the film.
