Ilayathalapathy Vijay thrilled his fans in dual roles in his last movie "Kaththi". In his next movie "Puli" the actor is going to give his fans a triple treat!

As per the latest reports, Vijay will be seen in three roles in "Puli". The three characters that Ilayathalapathy plays will be different from each other.

"Vijay will play a triple role, and all his three roles will be unique. We can't reveal the individual characters he plays at the moment," the Times of India quoted a source as saying. 

However, it is not clear what roles Vijay is playing in "Puli". Earlier, there were a lot of reports on his characters and it  was said that he would be seen in the roles of a dwarf and an artist. But the makers of the movie have remained tight-lipped about the same and have not opened up on the issue.

Currently, the film is being shot in Kerala at a museum. "Vijay is now all set to shoot for a present-day sequence inside a museum in Kerala," the source added. 

"Puli" is a fantasy adventure movie, which is directed by Chimbu Devan. The Tamil movie features Kannada superstar Sudeep as an antagonist. He will be playing the role of a Commander of Sridevi's kingdom in the Tamil film.
