Vijay pays heavily for Vadivelu for Vil

Prabhu Deva’s forthcoming directorial venture has finally been named. Earlier, the film was titled Singam but director Hari made it clear that he had registered the name. With this, Prabhu Deva and Vijay were on the lookout for an appropriate name. Everything seems to be settled now with the team finally zeroing in on a suitable title. Vijay’s next film will be called Vil!

That apart, seems like Vijay has missed his combination scenes with Vadivelu in Kuruvi so much that he left no stones unturned to make sure he is a part of Vil. According to sources close to producers, Vadivelu has been roped in for Vil for jaw dropping astronomical sums. It is also said that Vadivelu has had to amend his commitments for other already agreed projects to make room for Vijay.

Nayan plays opposite Vijay for Vil, touted to be an action adventure film, produced by Ayngaran International. Prakash Raj and Biju Menon are also included in the cast and Vil will have Ravi Varman’s camera and Devi Sri Prasad’s music. The venture will go on floors June 7th onwards.

Vijay’s Prabhu Deva film title is Vil

Finally, the suspense is over. Writer, director and choreographer Prabhu Deva, has titled his new Vijay film as Vil. Ayngaran International is the producers of the film, which will start rolling on June 7 at Palani.

There was a controversy when the makers of the film had initially wanted to title the film as Singam, but director Hari had registered the title and was in no mood to part with it.

Then there were rumours that it would be titled Singam Jwalikaruthu, which was also given up.

Vil is a very catchy title and an action adventure film that starts in a small remote village in Tamilnadu and travels to foreign land.

Prabhu Deva wants to make it as a racy entertainer, with all essential ingredients associated with a Vijay film. The others in the cast are Nayanthara, Vadivel, Prakash Raj and Biju Menon.

The film has top-of-the-range technicians- camera by Ravi Varman, Sunil is the art director and music by DSP (Devi Sri Prasad).

The shooting of the film will start in Palani on June 7, and from there the unit would proceed to Chalakudy in Kerala and come back to Karaikudi in Tamilnadu, for the rest of the first schedule which will be over by the end of June.
