The 33-year-old Atlee Kumar is among Tamil mainstream cinema’s most in-demand directors, having made blockbusters such as Theri and Mersal. His new film Bigil is set to release later this month.
Shah Rukh Khan’s film with Atlee won’t be a remake of any south Indian hit but an original script, a source revealed. Reportedly, Atlee wrote the script a while back and the film, an action drama, is meant to be an all-out commercial entertainer to be produced by SRK’s production house, Red Chillies Entertainment.
Talking about Bigil, the Kollywood sports action film is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The film has Vijay in dual roles. As the Tamil superstar will be seen donning the role of a footballer and a local don.
