Vijay Sethupathi in talks for the villain role in Thalapathy 64!
Tamil cinema is witnessing some interesting collaborations of late. South superstars Mohanlal and Suriya recently came together for ‘Kaappaan’. Rajinikanth’s ‘Petta’ had a plethora of stars. Now it looks like Vijay’s next film (Thalapathy 64) is also shaping up as a star studded one. The Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial already has high expectations among the Tamil audience.
Apparently, the makers are in talks with Vijay Sethupathi to play the antagonist’s role in the film. The ‘Pizza’ actor is yet to sign the dotted lines but it will be quite huge if he indeed comes on board. Vijay Sethupathi has done negative roles in several films in the past including ‘Petta’. So he won’t be really bothered about sharing screen space with another big star.
Also, Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi have not acted together yet. If things turn out well, the audience will get to witness a truly mouthwatering contest where the stars will be locking horns with each other. ‘Thalapathy 64’ is reportedly a gangster flick that will be completely different from the usual mass entertainers that Vijay does.
Malayalam actor Antony Varghese is also said to be a part of the film. Anirudh Ravichander has been signed as the composer and Xavier Britto is producing the film. Shoot is planned to begin next month and it is scheduled as a summer release next year.
