Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon, who has just completed shooting for a web series on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, has been roped in to play the antagonist in GV Prakash Kumar’s upcoming Tamil film. The yet-to-be-titled movie, which was launched on Friday, will be directed by debutante Mathimaran, who was formerly an assistant to Vetrimaaran.

Speaking to Cinema Express, director Mathimaran said: “Gautham Vasudev Menon perfectly fit the character I had in mind for the villain. That was the only reason to get him on board. The film is an action thriller, which will look at the off-campus life of a student for four years, as a biopic.”
