Vetrimaaran's movie with Soori seems to be put on a backburner. The National Award winning filmmaker was supposed to team up with the comedian for a laugh riot. With the director getting an offer to work with Vijay, his planned movie with the young actor is now rumoured to be put on a hold.

Rumours are rife in the tinsel town that Vetrimaaran's script has been approved by Vijay. The actor, who is busy with Lokesh Kanagaraj's flick, will be wrapping up the shooting of his upcoming film by February 2020.

So, Vijay, after coming across numerous of scripts, has given his consent to act in Vetrimaaran's film. On the other hand, the director was not expecting to work with the actor in such a quick notice. Hence, he seems to be in two minds as the pre-production works of his other film with Soori have been happening at a brisk pace.

Soori's film was supposed to be funded by Elred Kumar.
