Composer-turned-actor Vijay Antony has grown phenomenally as an actor, making all the right moves with interesting choice of films. After tasting back-to-back success with films such as Pichaikkaran, Saithan and recently released Yaman, the trade and audiences are interested to know what kind of projects he has in his kitty. With three projects currently in the pipeline, he will soon commence work on Annadurai, a family drama where he plays dual roles. He also has a project titled Pagalavan, which was originally pitched to Ilaiyathalapathy Vijay.
Pagalavan will be bankrolled by Kabali producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu, and it will be directed by Seeman, who returns to wield the megaphone after a hiatus. Even Vijay liked the script when it was initially narrated to him, he turned it down because it was highly political and he felt it might not suit his star image. Also, the film features strong political dialogues targeting several parties, and hence, he felt it’d be safe he doesn’t get associated with such a project.
Meanwhile, Vijay Antony also has a project titled Kaali with director Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, and pre-production work on the same has already begun. It might also go on the floors very soon.
