Vijay 61: Ilayathalapathy Vijay to play triple roles in Atlee's next?

If reports are anything to go by, Ilayathalapathy Vijay will be seen playing triple roles in the upcoming film with director Atlee.

After the theri-fic success of the cop thriller Theri, Vijay and Atlee are reuniting for a yet-untitled outing, which has already piqued the curiosity quotient among fans.

Interestingly, rumour has it that Ilayathalapathy will be essaying triple roles for the first time in his career. While there isn't any confirmation from the makers, reports also suggest that Vijay will be seen in an aged makeover- that of a father and two sons. It must be noted that the project has three heroines- Nithya Menen, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha playing the leading ladies.

According to a report in DC, Atlee, who was planning to shot the film in the US, has changed the script a bit, thanks to President Donald Trump's immigration policy.

To be bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films, Vijay 61 is penned by veteran screenwriter KV Vijayendra Prasad, who is known for his blockbusters like Baahubali, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Magadheera.

Meanwhile, Vijay's leaked picture from the sets of the film was a hit on the internet. Vijay 61 is expected to release in the second half of this year.
