"I wanted to work with Vijay since I was working as an assistant director. Now, having worked with him in Tamil film 'Thuppakki' and seen how fluently he speaks Hindi, I want to work with him in a Hindi film as well," said Murugadoss who has completed filming his Tamil action-thriller "Thuppakki" with Vijay.
In "Thuppakki", Vijay plays an army officer settled in Mumbai and speaks fluent Hindi.
The 38-year-old actor has teamed up with the filmmaker for the first time for the movie and said that he had a "terrific time".
"I've always admired him for his great storytelling ability and thoroughly loved working with him," Vijay told reporters here Wednesday at the music launch of the film.
Harris Jayaraj has composed music for the film and the director said: "Harris has given 10 times better music than his last super hit 'Kaakha Kaakha' and I'm sure the soundtrack will be a treat for Vijay fans."
"Thuppakki", produced by Kalaipuli S. Dhanu, is slated to released worldwide Nov 9.
