It will be his second film to be remade in Hindi, after Arjun Reddy. Titled Kabir Singh, the film received criticism for its endorsement of toxic masculinity and violence against women but it is now one of the highest grossing films of 2019. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani took on the lead roles in the film.
In August, Vijay shared he is going to turn producer for Meeku Maathrame Cheptha which, Tharun Bhascker will direct and play the lead in. Vijay had tweeted launching a production house in the early stages of his career was a risky move, especially since he burnt most of his savings behind the setting up of the company. But he also mentioned that these challenges keep him going.
