As the star gears up for the release of his film Puriyaatha Puthir on Friday, his next big release will be Karuppan, in which he will be seen in a full-blown rural avatar. Among the many projects in his kitty, he will be seen playing a don in upcoming action-comedy Junga, which will reunite him with director Gokul, who had worked with him in Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara.
For Junga, the actor is all set to play a new never seen before role. The News Minute has reported that Vijay Sethupathi will produce the film that is to start work from October, on a whopping budget of Rs 20 crore. Apparently, Vijay was quite impressed with the script and instead of taking remuneration; he agreed to produce the film on a profit-sharing basis, much to the surprise of the director.
Although an official announcement is yet to be made, it looks like Vijay is quite certain about his plan. It is already in the news that Vanamagan girl Sayyeshaa has been finalized as the leading lady. Furthermore, we hear that predominant portions of the film will be shot in Paris.
According to the director, the film will display Vijay in a different dimension. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised. The majority of the crew members will be from Gokul’s last says a reliable source.
In addition to all the good news, it is also being speculated that Vijay Sethupathi might join hands with filmmaker Mani Ratnam in a multi-starer project.
If the film does fall in place, it will definitely be something to look out for as the duo will be joining hands for the first time.
