Ilayathalapathy and Shankar have already worked together in Nanban, According to the buzz this will be straight film unlike Nanban which was a remake, Director Shankar in a recent interview did reveal that he has completed three scripts but is not sure which he'll begin next, He Said "I have almost finished three! I’m not sure which one I’ll start work on next though. Yes, I really want to make its sequel with Rajinikanth(Endhiran 2)), but I don’t know if it will be next, or even if it will happen at all."
There is also a growing buzz that Director Gautham Menon who is currently directing Thala might re-commence Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru with Ilayathalapathy and this well could be Vijay's 60th film.
