Filmmaker Vetrimaaran, whose last release was the Tamil rural revenge drama, Asuran (2019), has confirmed that he is working on a script for actor Vijay. He said that he’s waiting for a call from the actor to initiate the project.

In his latest interview to Tamil magazine Vikatan, the filmmaker, who is known for his long association with Dhanush, opened up on his upcoming project with Vijay. “I’m working on a script for Vijay. Whenever I get the call from him, I will pitch it and take it forward,” he said.

The filmmaker, who is known for helming films such as Polladhavan (2007), Aadukalam (2011), Visaranai (2016) and Vada Chennai (2018), currently has three projects in hand. The first of these is with actor and comedian Soori.  Apparently, the film will be based on Meeran Moideen’s novel Ajnabee, which is about a man who sells balloons for a living.

During a recent media interaction, Soori said that he agreed to be a part of the project after hearing just one line of story from Vetrimaaran. “It’s every actor’s dream to work with Vetri sir. When he called and told me he has this story which he’d like to make with me, I didn’t even think for a minute to give my nod.”

Vetrimaaran will also join hands with Suriya for the first time for the upcoming Vaadivasal (2020), based on a novel by the same name by CS Chellapa. Vaadivasal will unfold against the backdrop of Jallikattu, the ancient sport practiced in Tamil Nadu in which a bull has to be captured. It will be produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, who had produced the Dhanush-starrer, Asuran. 

However, Suriya will only work on Vaadivasal after he completes Aruvaa with director Hari.
