The sudden death of Tamil senior actor Vijaykanth has upset millions of fans. This is a big loss for the Tamil film industry. Vijay, who is now working on Venkat Prabhu’s GOAT, intends to pay tribute to the legendary hero in his upcoming film.
There’s talk that the team intends to include Vijaykanth in a cameo role using AI technology. Vijaykanth’s family has reportedly agreed to the idea. The movie will showcase Vijay in two roles within a time-traveling thriller. His younger character will intersect with Vijaykanth’s segment, set in the 1990s.
To achieve this, the GOAT team is investing heavily in de-aging technology and VFX. Venkat Prabhu aims to release the film by the end of the month. Vijaykanth’s cameo is expected to add depth, given the film’s exploration of different time periods.
The GOAT’s music will be composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, targeting a summer release. Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose the music for The Greatest of All Time, which is set to be released this summer.
