Vijay Sethupathi’s look in Seethakaathi was released a few days ago to coincide with his birthday and it has gone viral. The star was seen sporting a wrinkled look and gray hair and looked every bit like an aged man.
How did this transformation happen? Well, thanks to the Oscar-winning make-up artistes Kevin Haney and Alex Noble. They had worked on the look for Vijay Sethupathi and managed to come up with a perfect makeover. Reports are that the make up artistes took up to four hours to work on Vijay Sethupathi’s look.
While fans are raving about the star’s look in the movie, critics point out that Vijay Sethupathi’s look in it resembles that of Sathyajit Ray and Kamal Haasan’s look in Indian.
Reports are that Vijay Sethupathi is playing a drama artiste in Seethakaathi with Parvathi Nair, Remya Nambeesan and Gayathrie as the female leads. Popular director J Mahendran will be seen in a crucial role in the movie.
Balaji Tharaneetharan, who had wielded the megaphone for the smash hit Vijay Sethupathi starrer Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom, is directing Seethakaathi. Govind Menon is composing music for this flick with Saraskanth T. K. working on the camera and R Govindraj roped in for editing.
Bankrolled by Sudhan Sundaram, Umesh G, Jayaram and Arun Vaidyanathan under the banner Passion Studios, Seethakaathi will be a landmark film in Vijay Sethupathi’s career as it happens to be his 25th film.
Kevin Haney won the Oscar award in 1989 for Best Makeup for the film Driving Miss Daisy, which he shared with Lynn Barber and Manlio Rocchetti. Some of the Hollywood movies that he had worked in include Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3 and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
