Here is some good news for Ilayathalapathy fans. The first look of his forthcoming movie, which presently goes by the name "Vijay 59", will be released during Diwali.

Rumours are rife that the first look of "Vijay 59" will be released during Diwali but the exact date is not known yet. As it is a five-day festival, the release date is still unclear. 

It is widely believed that the first look of "Vijay 59" will be out on 10 November. The poster is most likely to be out at midnight like the trailer and teaser of other big projects released in the recent past. 

People are also expecting that the official name of "Vijay 59" will be announced on the day. There have been a lot of speculations on the movie title but nothing has been confirmed yet. The prominent names among them are "Vetri" and "Khaki".

However, there seems to be some problem over "Khaki" title, since it has been registered by some other filmmaker. The "Vijay 59" makers are yet to get the clearance.

Meanwhile, the shooting is fast progressing towards completion. Amy Jackson joined the shooting on Sunday, 1 November. She shared her excitement on Twitter: "Great first day joining the team for @actorvijay and @Atlee_dir shoot. Hiiii rainy Chennai."

Vijay recorded a song recently. He has crooned the song titled "Chellaakutty". Music director GV Prakash Kumar has said that it is a peppy romantic number.

"Vijay 59" has been written and directed by Atlee Kumar of "Raja Rani" fame. Samantha and Amy Jackson are playing the female leads in the movie.
