Thalapathy Vijay's recent release Beast toppled in several south states as KGF Chapter 2 starring Yash released a day after the Tamil movie hit the theatres. Apart from facing tough competition, the movie also received negative reviews.
However, the loyal fan base of the Tamil actor still have pinned high hopes on Vijay's upcoming flicks.
While South actors are foraying into Bollywood with pan-India projects, Vijay yet hasn't stepped into the Hindi film industry apart from a special appearance in a song from Salman Khan's 'Wanted'. However, it seems, the long-standing desires of fans of Thalapathy from north India will get fulfilled soon.
As per the latest buzz in the industry, Thalapathy will be seen alongside Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan in one of his upcoming flicks. Bollywood Badshah recently made an announcement about teaming up with filmmaker Atlee for an action movie titled 'Jawan'.

Filmmaker Atlee is known for helming a string of successful blockbuster flicks in the south like Raja Rani, Theri, Mersal and Bigil to name a few. Even, the South film director shares a good bond with Thalapathy and as the helmer is foraying into Bollywood with Jawan, many are speculating that the director would bring Thalapathy on board in a cameo or special appearance. Even the chances seems to be on the brighter side.
With Jawan, SRK targets to release the movie pan-India in multiple languages. Moreover, fans will be quite excited to see Thalapathy with the Baadshah. Fans need to wait for an official announcement from the makers regarding the inclusion of Thalapathy.
Jawan will arrive in theatres on 2 June 2023 and the first look of SRK has left his fans in a frenzy moment.

Thalapathy all set to enthrall fans with back-to-back projects
Fans are quite excited about 'Thalapathy 66' in which the actor will be once again seen with Rashmika Mandanna. The latest buzz in town suggests that the team is planning to launch the title and first look poster of the flick on June 22, which also marks the birthday of Thalapathy.
The movie has reportedly completed two schedules of filming in Chennai and Hyderabad. The movie is a family drama helmed by Telugu director Vamshi Paidipally and is bankrolled by Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations.
Apart from that, Vijay also has again teamed up with the Master team for the tentatively titled project- Thalapathy67. Lokesh Kanagaraj will helm the movie while more updates regarding the movie are yet to be obtained.
Even, Atlee and Thalapathy will once again come up with another project once the director is done with SRK's Jawan, sources revealed.
While social media is abuzz about the 'sinking boat of Bollywood', the spat between a few actors from both regional film industries and Bollywood fuelled up the controversy. It seems the upcoming days will witness a massive changeover in the Indian film industry.
