The latest talk in the town is that Thalapathy Vijay, the Kollywood superstar, will be doing a straight Telugu film. While it will be a Telugu-Tamil bilingual, it will mark the 'Mersal' actor's entry into Tollywood.
As per the rumour, 'Maharshi' director Vamshi Paidipally will helm the film. Dil Raju, the ace producer, will bankroll it.
Pending an official word on this, the buzz is already gaining much traction. Vijay has been climbing up the popularity ladder in the Telugu States. He is the biggest star in Tamil Nadu and a lot of overseas markets see him as the biggest Kollywood star. His January release, 'Master', was a big hit in the Telugu States.
The film may not go on the floors anytime soon.
