After the stupendous success of Master, Thalapathy Vijay joined hands with director Nelson Dilipkumar for a commercial entertainer. Tentatively titled Thalapathy 65, the first schedule of the film began in Georgia last month. After shooting for nearly 20 days, Thalapathy Vijay and the entire team reached Chennai. Now, reports suggest that Malayalam actress Shine Tom Chacko has been roped in to play an important role in the film. Recently, Shine Tom Chacko spoke to a leading portal and confirmed his inclusion.
Shine will be making his debut in Tamil cinema with Thalapathy 65. He said, "I am here for the discussions. The first schedule of the movie’s shoot was already over in Georgia. I guess the next schedule was supposed to start soon, if not for the COVID restrictions. Now the team is thinking about June. I’m not fluent in Tamil yet. I check out Tamil films often and also watch interviews and speeches of Tamil actors like Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth. Certain words I don’t understand, but overall, I can make sense out of it. That’s it. Be it from Telugu, Bollywood, or even Malayalam industry, the artists who work in Kollywood – especially actresses – are able to grasp the language well While I can at least recognize the Tamil language through its words, I can’t tell Telugu and Kannada from each other, yet.
