The first look poster of Vijay's "Kaththi" is likely to be revealed in June. Fans were expecting the first look to be released on 1 May, but it did not happen.
Now, it is being said that the poster will be revealed in June after the photo shoot is completed. Entertainment industry tracker Sreedhar Pillai has confirmed the news on his Twitter handle. "#Kaththi update - First look in June, only after photo shoot. Shoot going on in Chennai, later will shift 2 Hyderabad. On track 4 Diwali," Pillai tweeted.
There is a possibility that "Kaththi" first look might be unveiled on Vijay's birthday, which happens to be on 22 June.
However, an official confirmation is still awaited.
Ajith's Film Title
There have been a lot of buzz doing the rounds about Ajith-Gautham Menon's film title.
Speculations were rife that the film has been named "Sathya." But sources have told the Times of India that the film is not titled "Sathya" and the team is yet to confirm a name.
Earlier, there were reports claiming that "Thala 55" (tentatively titled by Ajith fans) will be named "Aayiram Thottakkal." But director Gautham Menon had revealed some time ago that Ajith's character could possibly be the film's title. In that case, "Aayiram Thottakkal" might not be the film's name.
Since "Thala 55" is touted to be a musical action thriller, the film's title is likely to be a power-packed one. An official announcement regarding the title is still awaited.
Suriya-Murugadoss to Team up Once Again?
There are reports doing the rounds that Suriya is all set to team up with director AR Murugadoss next year.
If the reports turn out to be true, then the new project will be the third one in Suriya and Murugadoss's association. The actor-director duo's "Ghajini" was a massive hit at the box office. Later, in 2011 the duo teamed up for "7aum Arivu" which failed to set the cash registers ringing. After nearly four years, the duo is likely to team once again, sure enough to send the fans into frenzy.

"Arrambam" to be Remade in Hindi?
Ever since "Arrambam" released and turned out to be a hit, there have been reports of the film getting remade in Hindi.

However, it is not clear whether he will direct the Hindi remake of "Arrambam" or start with a fresh project. The director is expected to make an announcement soon.
