If sources are anything to go by, Vijay Sethupathi will join hands again with director Balaji Tharaneetharan, best known for his runaway hit comedy Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom.
The duo is set to reunite for a project reportedly titled Seethakathi, and it is said to be based on a well-known Tamil scholar of the same name in 1650s. According to reliable sources, Vijay Sethupathi’s character in the film will be modeled on the scholar. An official announcement is still awaited from the makers who plan to go on the floors by July.
With an interesting line up of films including Vikram Vedha, Aneethi Kathaigal, Karuppan and 96 in his kitty, it’s going to be another busy year for the Pizza actor who is basking in the success of Kavan. Apparently, Vijay Sethupathi agreed to do the project just to help his friend Balaji make another film. Despite making a film called Oru Pakka Kathai, Tharaneetharan hasn’t been able to release his second film and he has apparently wasted the last two years of his career.
When Vijay learnt that Balaji is not able to find a buyer to release his second film, he agreed to do another project with the latter.
