Vijay TV bags Thuppakki satellite rights

It looks like Vijay TV has paid a record price for the satellite rights of actor Vijay's Thuppaki directed by A R Murugadoss. After garnering terrific TRPs earlier this year for telecasting Vijay's Nanban, which released for Pongal earlier this year, we hear that the channel was quite aggressively trying to get hold of the rights for Thuppaki as well.

The film is still on the floors and is expected to release on Diwali. Rumours are rife that the director is actually planning to remake this film in Hindi with Akshay Kumar in the lead.

Thuppaki is said to be a stylish action entertainer and has Kajal Aggarwal pairing up with Vijay for the first time. The film has music by hitmaker Harris Jayaraj while the cinematography is by visual wizard Santhosh Sivan.

According to sources in the film's unit, "The shooting for the film is about 70 per cent complete with a couple of songs yet to be picturised in addition to the usual patchwork. But Murugadoss sir is currently editing the shot segments with editor Antony. Once Kajal Aggarwal completes her Maattrraan commitments, we'll be shooting the songs."
