Kiara Advani
Kiara Advani to romance Thalapathy Vijay.

After staring her career in Bollywood, Kiara Advani seems to be slowly expanding her market in South Indian movies. The actress, who had romanced Mahesh Babu in Bharat Ane Nenu, has bagged one more biggie. She is reportedly set to pair up with none other than Thalapathy Vijay in a Tamil film.

The buzz in the Tamil media is that Kiara Advani has been approached by Atlee Kumar for his next movie with Vijay. The actress is yet to sign the movie on the dotted lines and talks are still happening. But the rumour mills have gone to the extent of claiming that she does not want to leave the project as it can give a solid start to her career in Tamil films.

Kiara Advani started her career with Fugly in 2014 and shot to limelight with MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. She won rave reviews for her performance in Mahesh Babu's Bharat Ane Nenu and the web series Lust Stories.

Atlee Kumar will be teaming up with Vijay for the third time after the superhit movie Theri and blockbuster Mersal. AGS Entertainment is reportedly funding the project which is the actor's 63rd movie. AR Rahman is on board to compose the music.

Meanwhile, Vijay is busy with AR Murugadoss' upcoming movie Sarkar, which has Keerthy Suresh in the female lead, while Varalaxmi Sarathkumar will be seen in an important character. Thalapathy is expected to take a few months break after the completion of this flick.

The Atlee's film will take off in January 2019.
