Dhanush and vijay had recently seen sharing a friendly relationship. 
KV anand said After Maattrraan; he was approached by many producers to do a film with Vijay.

Karthik plays a 50-year-old in the film, but is a fun loving guy. The film is set in an IT company and he plays the manager of a team there.

In the recent times, Vijay seems to have shed his born identity of being a reserve while speaking at a public gathering.

The amount of success we get in our lives is directly proportional to the effort put in. And, while doing so, we should be ready to cross all the barricades thrown at us. The fans of Vijay were enlightened with his speech.

Kaththi's 50th Day

After facing a lot of crisis over the release, the film was released on 22 October with huge expectations from the audience. It released above 1000 screens worldwide. This Tamil action thriller film is the collaboration of Director Murugadas and Illayathalapathy Vijay.

Today is the 50th day of kaththi movie in theatres. It is one of the most success stories in Tamil cinema. It has been well accepted by the audiences from Day 1. The film has gained more than 100 crore worldwide to emerge as the biggest grosser this year among all Tamil films. This is the second box office hit movie of Vijay, after the movie called “Thuppakki”. But it reached this box office hit within 12 days. For the other current generation stars, Kaththi's business would be a benchmark to hunt.

After Azhagiya Tamil Magan and Villu,  Vijay did dual roles (as Kathiresan and Jeevanantham) in this movie, for the 3rd time in his career.  While the latter two didn't make it well to Vijay and were spoiled by negative reviews. But this time, Kaththi has changed the thought of those reviews and marked as a first genuine dual role of vijay in his two decade successful long career.

Kaththi 50th day celebration will be in thiruneveli. Vijay and AR Murugadas will attend the function. In 'Vijay 58' also vijay featuring the mass hero in dual roles, so hope he would be looking to extend his 'double role success story'.

Murugadoss created guessing game

AR Murugadoss's latest directorial project Kaththi has become the box office hit movie in south. It is one of the fastest Tamil movies that reached 100crores within 12 days. Now, Director Murugadoss has decided to remake of this film in Hindi. All eyes are now on its Hindi remake. Quite a few Bollywood actors are interested to act in the Hindi version of Kaththi.

Action star Akshay Kumar has shown interest in the Hindi film. Even before, he had worked with Murugadoss in Holiday (remake of Thuppaki), he wants to work with the talented director once again.

But this time is not sure for him to get chance. The director shared this picture on Twitter where he is discussing about something with Salman Khan and Govinda. For creating some hyp, Murugadoss just posted the picture without any caption or info. The filmmakers guessing that it’s about teaming up with Khan and Govinda for the Hindi remake of Kaththi. Salman can step into Vijay's shoes and his Partner co-star can reprise the role of Neil Nitin Mukesh who played the anti hero role in original.

Still the motive behind posting the picture on the micro blogging site remains unknown, hope that the ‘discussions’ turn out to be fruitful. But in which actress Sonakshi Sinha is confirmed.
