Its been confirmed that after completing Mersel, Vijay will collaborate with Kaththi and Thuppakki director A R Murugadoss. The film is said to go to floors late this year or early next year.

Much like Kaththi which was about the plight of farmers and Thuppaki which handled the subject of hidden terror cells, Vijay 62 will also address an important social issue.

Speculations suggest tha Rakul Preet Singh may be signed for the female lead role and Anirudh may return to compose the music after Kaththi. Sun Pictures will bankroll the project.
