Superstar Thalapathy Vijay and ace director Lokesh Kanagaraj are coming together for a movie once again. The blockbuster combo has joined hands for a gangster drama tentatively titled Thalapathy 67. The movie is scheduled to go on floors in October/November this year. Here is a new update on the movie, reportedly Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has been roped in by the makers.

Sanjay Dutt was last seen in KGF Chapter 2 as antagonist Adheera. He had locked horns with Rocky Bhai aka Kannada superstar Yash for the same. Reportedly Dutt will now lock horns with Thalapathy Vijay in Lokesh Kanagaraj’s gangster-based action thriller.


As reported by sources to Pinkvilla, “The script demands the presence of multiple powerful villains and who better than Sanjay Dutt to play one of the many baddies in this yet untitled film. Lokesh has been in conversation with Sanjay Dutt for a while now and things have finally fallen in place. The actor is been paid a gigantic amount of Rs 10 crore to act in the film.”

Sources added, “It’s going to be a Pan India release. Lokesh Kanagaraj is slowly getting fame in the Northern belt after the release of Vikram and he is planning to take things a notch higher with Vijay’s next. It’s a slow and steady process for Vijay as well to make a mark in the Hindi belts. This one will be his biggest release in the Hindi market.”

Buzz is, that Prithviraj Sukumaran too will be playing a negative role in the Lokesh Kanagaraj film. But there has been no confirmation of the same as yet. Thalapathy 67 will be targeting a Diwali 2023 release.
