Thalapathy 67: Gautham Menon Plays The Antagonist After Sanjay Dutt

It was first announced that Thalapathy Vijay would be portraying a salt-and-pepper 40-year-old criminal in Lokesh Kanagaraj's upcoming film. A few months later, we let our readers know that Sanjay Dutt had joined the movie as the major antagonist for the price of Rs 10 crore. We also discussed the need for several antagonists in this gangster thriller. And now, we are here to report that Gautham Menon has been cast in this massive action movie to play one of the antagonists.

 
Gautham Menon and Lokesh Kanagaraj have been attempting to collaborate for some time, and suddenly everything is falling into place. Alongside Sanjay Dutt, Gautham will portray one of Thalapathy 67's main villains. Although Gautham Menon is reported to be a wack negative lead like never before, all of his personality qualities are being kept a secret, according to a source familiar with the production.
 
As previously said, Thalapathy 67 will get a national release, and the producers also plan to incorporate it into the Lokesh Kanagaraj Gangster Universe, which currently counts actors like Karthi, Kamal Haasan, Fahadh Faasil, and Suriya among its cast.
 
Although Lokesh's world has certain cinematic connections, he has not yet received approval from the three superstars Kamal Haasan, Suriya, and Vijay to work together on this universe. The source continued, "Thalapathy 67 is now classified as an independent unit with certain open ends for a likely universe.
 
In addition to Sanjay Dutt and Gautham Menon, additional actors will be chosen to play roles in the movie that have gray shades. There are still no written agreements despite ongoing discussions with prominent figures in the Malayalam business. Given that Lokesh wants to start shooting Thalapathy 67 by November of this year, the movie will aim for a Diwali 2023 release.
