Months ago when he signed on to play the lead in the film with the actress, Sethupathi said that he has been in love with Trisha’s Jessie from Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya.
“I fell in love with the character of Jessie like anybody else. I don’t think I have ever dreamt of acting with Trisha. It feels really good to act with her,” he had said.
In 96, the fresh pair will be a part of a unique love story and the movie is directed by Prem Kumar, who was earlier the cinematographer of Vijay Sethupathi’s Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom. The flick will be produced by Nandagopal and music will be composed by Govind. It is reported that Vijay Sethupathi will sport the role of a 96-year-old man. However, what we are more intrigued about is the love story that will be weaved from this rather interesting combination.
On the work front, Trisha was last seen making her Malayalam debut in the film Hey Jude with Nivin Pauly. She has a slew of projects in the pipeline including Garjanai – the Tamil remake of the Hindi film NH10, Sathuranga Vettai 2 with Arvind Swami. She also has horror thriller Mohini, which is currently awaiting a green signal from the release regulation committee of Tamil Film Producers Council.
For Vijay Sethupathi, the actor has Super Deluxe, Junga, Seethakathi, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Idam Porul Yaeval, and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam with Mani Ratnam.
