A superstar from down south is making the biggest movie of his career. The name of the movie is Thalapathy 68 and the superstar I am talking about is none other than Vijay.

It is a Tamil-language film directed by Venkat Prabhu. This film is also one of the most expensive and hyped movies not only in Thalapathy Vijay’s career but also in the entire South Indian film industry.

Thalapathy Vijay has a cult fan following. Many of them even spend sleepless nights outside event locations just to get a glimpse. So, it is needless to say that fans are eagerly waiting for the film’s release.

Latest News About Thalapathy 68

The latest update on Thalapathy 68 is that the principal photography of the movie started on 3 October 2023 with the first shoot in Chennai. The same is confirmed by reports of India Today.

A song revolving around the younger Vijay was shot in the first sequence. The notable thing is that the song is choreographed by Raju Sundaram using Artificial Intelligence. 

The Times of India also reported that the entire crew has left for Istanbul, Turkey to shoot the second sequence of the movie.

Release Date of Thalapathy 68

The fans of Thalapathy Vijay can rejoice because the shooting of Thalapathy 68 is currently in full swing. We can expect the film to be completed in mid-2024. After all the clearance, the movie will hit theatres in late 2024. 

As the release date is still far away, fans are waiting to witness the magic that director Venkat Prabhu and his team are set to deliver.

Earlier, Atleee was reported to direct the project. Eventually, Prabhu was brought on board by the producers due to his impressive work in movies like Victim, Goa, and Kutty Story.

Thalapathy 68  Cast

According to The Hindu, the casting of Thalapathy 68 is still not completed. Producers and directors are approaching actors for the film. However, one thing is for sure, makers are trying their best to rope in the finest in the industry.

  • Vijay – Thalapathy Vijay will play the lead role in the film. It is going to be a dual role in which he will play characters of both father and son.
  • Simran – According to Pinkvilla, Simran will play the role of the lead actress opposite Thalapathy Vijay. Before that, the team approached Jyothika Saravanan for the same role. However, she backed off due to unknown reasons.
  • Aamir Khan – The rumours of Aamir Khan playing a part in Thalapathy 68 is also hot. If it is true then it is going to be huge news because it will be the first time Aamir will be playing a role in a Tamil movie.
  • Prabhu Deva – The Times of India has confirmed that Prabhu Deva will play a pivotal role in Thalapathy 68.
  • Ivana (Aleena Shaji) – Love Today fame, Ivana, will play the role of Vijay’s daughter.
  • Yogi Babu

Box Office Collection

With the combination of Vijay’s star power and the high budget of the production team, we all are expecting Thalapathy 68 to do well at the box office.

One of the main reasons why Thalapathy 68 is going to be a sure-shot hit is because a large number of Vijay’s fans will make advance bookings. It would not be surprising if the movie recovers a big chunk of its investment by advance booking only.

Still, a lot depends on the quality of the movie. We have seen films like Adipurush failing at the box office even after having the star power of Prabhas and a high budget.

OTT Platform and Release Date

The New Stuff recently reported that Netflix has acquired the streaming rights of Thalapathy 68. So, it is clear that this movie will be released on Netflix.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to confirm Thalapathy 68 as of now. The movie is expected to release in late 2024. So, fans will have to wait till at least mid-2025 to stream Thalapathy 68 on Netflix.
