Thalapathy Vijay’s football based mass entertainer ‘Bigil’ is the most anticipated film that’s planned for Diwali. Along with that, Vijay Sethupathi’s ‘Sanga Tamizhan’ has also joined the race. Interestingly, both ‘Bigil’ and ‘Sanga Tamizhan’ have their lead actors in dual roles. Yes, both Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi will be seen in double roles in these films. Likewise, both the films have high expectations among the Tamil audience.
