There were reports on the social media that Sun Pictures opted out of Thalapathy Vijay's new film with director AR Murugadoss due to budget issues and Sri Thenandal Films, the producers of Mersal have come forward to bankroll the film.
But our sources have vehemently denied it as a baseless rumor. "Sun Pictures is keen to produce the film and we haven't finalized the budget, cast and crew due to the pandemic and industry shutdown. Only Vijay, Murugadoss, and Thaman have been confirmed for the film and the director is currently busy penning the script. Once both Vijay and Kalanithi Maran give the final nod to the script, they will proceed with the rest of the things".
Meanwhile, Vijay is currently on a break due to the COVID 19 lockdown and eagerly waiting for the theatrical release of his magnum opus action thriller Master when the theatres open.
