The Telugu film co-stars Amitabh Bachchan, Tamannaah Bhatia, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Jagapathi Babu in important roles.

Thalapathy Vijay starrer Bigil is one of most awaited films of this year. Since the film marks the reunion of director Atlee and Vijay after Mersal, the expectations are sky-high from the film. Nayanthara has worked with Vijay in Sivakasi and Villu in the past and this will be her third collaboration with the actor.

Kaithi – Rs 50 crore

This Karthi starrer action-thriller is bankrolled by Vivekananda Pictures and Dream Warrior Pictures and also stars Narain, Dheena and George Mariyan in key roles. 70 per cent of the film will be shot in and around Chennai and Tirunelveli. It is directed by Lokesh.

In this Thiru directorial action drama, Gopichand portrays the character of a RAW agent, who goes rogue. We hope, the actor will make a great comeback with this film after a string of flops.

In this period-action drama, we will witness the events that happened in 15th and 16th century and how a 12-year-old boy takes up his first fight. “These are things which happened in 15th and 16th century in North Kerala between two kingdoms and here comes the special element which will be revealed in the film. There is also an unknown character which leads the way but the story revolves around a 12-year-old boy who is going for his first Mamangam fight with his uncle. How he overcomes all the challenges, is the gist and what happens in between is the real story of Mamangam,” Mammootty told us in an exclusive interview.
