Antony Varghese to star alongside Vijay?
Malayalam actor Antony Varghese is just two films old but has already shown a lot of promise and enjoys a strong fan following as well. He currently has four projects lined up in Malayalam. If reports are to be believed, Antony is planning into foray into Tamil as well. Big news is that he is in talks for Thalapathy Vijay’s new film.
Vijay’s next after the ongoing Atlee film, ‘Bigil’, will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. Buzz is that Antony is being considered to play a negative role in the film. The news is yet to be confirmed, but if it turns out to true, it will be the best possible launch for Antony in Kollywood.
Lokesh’s film with Vijay is said to be a gangster story. The director made his debut in 2017 with the surprise hit ‘Maanagaram’. The movie, which was a brilliantly made hyperlink thriller, emerged both as a critical and commercial success. Since then, Lokesh has been rated as one of the most promising filmmakers in Tamil. His next with Vijay has almost been confirmed and it will be bankrolled by Xavier Britto, who is said to be a relative of the actor.
Antony meanwhile has ‘Jallikkattu’ gearing up for release. He also has ‘Aanaparambile World Cup’ and a film each with Tinu Pappachan and debutant Nithish Sahadev in the pipeline.
