No more `Singam` for Vijay

Looks like Vijay is not being lucky with the title he choses for his next movie after Kuruvi. Initially he chose ‘Seval’ which is director Hari’s upcomming movie with Bharath, but Hari refused to part with the title to Vijay.

Now Hari has again announced that his next project with Surya is titled Singam. Yes the same title that Vijay was going to act in under Prabhudeva direction. The lead actress of this movie with Vijay is Nayantara.The buzz is that the clash between director Hari and Vijay started when Vijay refused call sheet for Hari’s ‘Vel’ because of his prior commitment to ‘Azhagiya Tamizh Magan’.

Now the team of Prabudeva, Vijay are searching for a suitable title for their upcomming flick. Lets hope its not the same as Hari’s next movie after Singam.
