“It was a great fight sequence, and he (Vijay) left me with a bloody mouth. I have also fought well with a physique like mine. Lokesh Kanagaraj is a precise filmmaker. He only shoots the moments between A and B and doesn’t teach acting to actors. I liked it about him. Some directors teach acting usually. He doesn’t make actors feel bored and gives us a good space. The film is also interesting and it has a very good crew.” - Director Mysskin in an interview about filming an action sequence for Thalapathy 67
Thalapathy 67 begins a schedule in Kodaikanal today that Vijay is not a part of. In the first week of February,2023 the movie will begin its Kashmir schedule, and both Vijay and Sanjay Dutt will be part of the filming.
