Thalapathy Vijay recently met with cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni at Gokulam Studios in Chennai. Dhoni has been filming television ads for the past four days while Vijay is filming his film Beast. When the two stars realised they were working at the same studio, they decided to meet up.
The second schedule of director Nelson Dilipkumar’s Beast, starring Vijay and Pooja Hegde, has resumed in Chennai. Meanwhile, Mahendra Singh Dhoni arrived in Chennai a few days ago and has been filming ads in preparation for the IPL 2021.
Because Vijay and Dhoni are both shooting at Gokulam Studios, they decided to get together and spend some quality time bonding. This will most likely be their first meeting since the Chennai Super Kings were unveiled in 2008. Vijay and Nayanthara were named the team’s brand ambassadors at the time.
While fans in Tamil Nadu refer to Vijay as Thalapathy, Dhoni is affectionately known as Thala. In English, the word Thala means “leader.”
