‘Mersal’ director Atlee who shot to limelight with his debut ‘Raja Rani’ starring Arya and Nayanthara is reportedly planning on roping ‘Bahubali’ actor Prabhas for his venture into Tollywood.

While Atlee hinted that there may be a Hat-trick with Vijay after ‘Their’ and ‘Mersal’ last year, reports indicate that the combo may take some time off before working on their third film.

Enquires on his next film revealed that Atlee is busy with scripting work and he will not move on to finalizing the hero without completing the script in the next couple of months.

The winner of the 4th Annual National Film Awards in the UK, ‘Mersal’ stars Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menon with Vijay donning three roles. The ₹120 crores budget film released worldwide on Diwali and recently made a comeback at the theaters due to the dearth of new Tamil films due to the TNFPC’s strike.
