Vijay Sethupathi and Antony Varghese to join Thalapathy 64 team next month
Shoot for ‘Thalapathy 64′ is currently progressing in New Delhi. The team is shooting in various colleges across the city as major portions of the film is set in a campus. Vijay is playing a college professor with an untold dark side in this Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial. Vijay Sethupathi has been cast as the antagonist. Malayali star Antony Varghese, Malavika Mohanan, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, Andrea Jeremiah, ’96’ fame Gouri G Kishan and Ramya Subramanian are also part of the film.
Vijay Sethupathi and Antony will be joining the team only next month as they both are busy with their other commitments. Along with Sethupathi, Antony is also said to be playing a negative role in the film. Andrea’s character also has grey shades. She will be part of some action scenes for which she is currently undergoing special training. Interestingly, almost none of the major actors in the cast have shared screen space with Vijay before, so there will be a lot of freshness in the film.
As per the makers, ‘Thalapathy 64’ will be completely different film from the usual mass masala entertainers that Vijay does. Lokesh has scripted the film with additional screenplay by Pon Parthiban and ‘Aadai’ director Rathna Kumar. On the technical side, music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander and cinematography is by Sathyan Sooryan.
Xavier Britto is producing the film, which is scheduled for summer release in 2020.
