Mohan Raja directed actor Sivakarthikeyan in Velaikaaran recently. It is said that Mohan Raja and his team have started working on the script and would be completing it in a couple of months. Sources close to the team reveal that the official announcement regarding the film will be made by the end of this month. “After Velayudham, I will teaming up with Vijay yet again for a film.” says the director in the video.
Vijay has been making subtle political statements through his last couple of films. We will have to wait and see if his film with Mohan Raja will be along similar lines.
In the meantime, Mohan Raja also added that he will be working on Thani Oruvan 2 with his brother Jayam Ravi. His film with Vijay will probably go on floors towards the end of the year if everything goes as per plan.
