AR Murugadoss gets whopping 12 crores salary for Vijay's film!

Murugadoss to be paid 12 Cr to direct Vijay-starrer?
Though it is not confirmed as yet, it is rumoured strongly in Kollywood circles that popular director A.R. Murugadoss has been assured a whopping sum of Rs.12 crores to direct his next film which would star Vijay in the lead.
The talk that Vijay and Murugadoss are likely to come together has been there for some time but it now appears a distinct reality.

The film has been titled Thuppakki and is likely to be a mass entertainer.  It was to be produced by Vijay’s father S.A. Chandrasekaran in association with Gemeni Films.  Though it’s not stated as such, Murugadoss’ fee reportedly made the film change hands.  The film would now be produced by ‘Kalaipuli’ Thanu.

Known for making films with grandeur, Thanu has reportedly agreed to pay the above-stated fee to Murugadoss.  However, the fee to be paid to Vijay hasn’t yet been revealed.  The total budget of the film is likely to touch Rs.65 crores, making it the first time that such a huge amount goes into producing a Vijay-starrer.

There has been some tension brewing in the distribution circles which are apprehensive about whether the film would fare fitting at the box-office to match its huge production cost.  Kajal Aggarwal has been roped in as Vijay’s heroine in the film, which would have music by Harris Jeyaraj.

Vijay is said to be only too eager to start shooting as he has had a fabulous year with back-to-back hits in Kaavalan and Velayudham.
