Kolamavu Kokila directed by Nelson Dilipkumar was a laugh riot with Nayathara and Yogi Babu. Loosely inspired by We are the Millers. The film was a lot of fun. Even the song Kalyana Vayasu Thaan Vandhirichu di became a viral hit. Yogi Babu romancing Nayanthara was very different and it resonated with listeners and viewers. He has also directed Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming Doctor. It is not often that a one film old director would get a chance to direct Thalapathy Vijay. But once Murugadoss walked out Nelson was Vijay’s choice and the film is produced by the ever reliable Sun Pictures.
Pooja Hegde was a novice when she first starred in a Tamil film. Sadly for her the movie Mugamoodi was a colossal failure. She was off the radar for quite a while before she found her calling in Telugu cinema. Her last Telugu film Ala Vaikundapuramulo was an industry blockbuster. She is a star actress in Telugu cinema right now. She is all set to make a rousing comeback in Tamil cinema with Thalapathy 65. This will be a fresh pairing for Vijay.
