It’s not Perarasu, nor is it Jayam Raja. It is now confirmed that Vijay’s fiftieth film will be directed by SP Rajkumar. The man, who is currently directing 'Azhagar Malai' with RK in the lead, will next direct the Ilaya Thalapathy in his landmark film, apart from penning the story, screenplay and dialogues. The film will be produced by Sangili Murugan’s Murugan Cine Arts.
SP Rajkumar had earlier teamed up with Vijay for ‘Friends’, for which he had written the dialogues. Sangili Murugan, meanwhile, had produced Vijay’s blockbuster 'Kadhalukku Mariyadhai'. The trio getting together is expected to produce yet another blockbuster for the Ilaya Thalapathy, who expects a hit now.
The actor is expected to do a flick with Jayam Raja following this. Ajith’s 50 film, which will begin a little later this year, will be directed by Venkat Prabhu.
