The last couple of years have been undeniably terrific for Vijay Sethupathi, who has now become one of the most sought after stars of Tamil cinema. With half a dozen projects in his kitty and a few in different stages of production, Vijay is all set to reunite with director SP Jananthan for a new yet-untitled project which will be bankrolled by Arumuga Kumar, who had produced Sethupathiâ€™s Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren.
The project is currently in pre-production stage and it has already been confirmed that Jagapathi Babu has been roped in as the antagonist.
According to the grapevine, Shruti Haasan is most likely to team up with Sethupathi for the first time in this project. Apparently, Shruti has already been approached with the project and she has given her consent.
The makers are in the process of making an official announcement very soon. Last seen in Suriyaâ€™s Singam 3, Shruti hasnâ€™t signed any Tamil projects for over a year now. She had recently signed a Hindi film with actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar. This film with Vijay Sethupathi could be her much-needed comeback after struggling to make an impact with her last few outings.
Vijay Sethupathi, last seen playing a crucial role in superstar Rajinikanthâ€™s Petta, will be next seen playing a trans woman in Super Deluxe. He is currently shooting for Sindhubaadh with Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi director Arun Kumar.
Having completed the first schedule of the film in May in Tenkasi, the team recently wrapped up their final schedule in Thailand where they shot for over a month. Sethupathi also has a project with Seenu Ramaswamy. He will soon commence shooting for his next project with director Vijay Chandar, best known for directing Sketch. Raashi Khanna pairs with Sethupathi in this project.
