Thalapathy Vijay is known for his double and Triple roles. Azhagiya Tamizhmagan was the first film in which he donned a double role. He played both the hero and the villain in the film. Though the film flopped at the box office Vijay’s double role was very much appreciated. But the film which really proved to be a game changer is Vijay’s Kaththi. In this film he showed a vast difference in characterization as Kathiresan and Jeevanantham. While Kathiresan has the usual Vijay traits he underplayed his character as Jeevanatham which worked very well with the audience and earned rave reviews.
In Atlee’s Mersal too he played a triple role as Vetrimaran and his two sons. But it is Vetrimaran’s character that stole our hearts. Now the buzz is that Thalapathy Vijay might play a double role in Thalapathy 63. He might play father and son. This is great news as all his previous such attempts have been well received. Besides this Atlee is a perfect Vijay fan so we can be 100 percent sure that the film will be a perfect treat for his fans. The names of the two characters are Michael and Bigil. An official confirmation regarding this awaited soon.
