There were reports that Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan would be part of Vijay's upcoming movie, which is presently referred to as Thalapathy 63. The latest buzz is that the King Khan is not acting in the Tamil film. 

Reports had claimed that the makers of the movie had pulled off something really unexpected as they roped in the Bollywood superstar to act in the Atlee Kumar's film.

Shah Rukh Khan is a familiar face among the Tamil audience although he has not acted in a straight Tamil film. His films like Happy New Year and Ra One were dubbed into Tamil. He is a self-proclaimed fan of Rajinikanth and he had paid a tribute to the superstar in Chennai Express.

It is interesting to note that Shah Rukh Khan had shared screen space with Ajith Kumar in his Hindi film Asoka more than a decade ago.

Thalapathy is produced by AGS Entertainment and written-directed by Atlee. Nayanthara is the female lead in the movie, which has Vivek, Kathir, Yogi Babu, Daniel Balaji and a host of actors are part of the supporting cast.

Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff is part of the Vijay-starrer and speculations say that he is doing the role with a negative shade. The film has AR Rahman's music, GK Vishnu's cinematography and Ruben's edting.
