After their successful collaborations in Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi, actor Vijay Sethupathi and director Arun Kumar have reunited for a yet-untitled project, which also stars Anjali as the female lead.
Having completed the first schedule of the film in May in Tenkasi, the team has plans to shoot the remaining portion of the film in Thailand, according to reliable sources. Apparently, the team will leave to Thailand soon after the release of Vijay Sethupathi’s Junga, which is slated to hit the screens later this month.
Arun Kumar and Sethupathi have been planning to join hands for a long time. There were plans to even make a sequel to Sethupathi, but looks like the idea fell through. The film is being jointly produced by K Productions and Yuvan Shankar Raja’s YSR Films. T
he film also stars Linga and Vivek Prasanna. Last seen playing a tribesman in Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren, Vijay Sethupathi is gearing up for an exciting line up of films this year. His next release of the year will be Junga, in which he plays a gangster. 96 will be his third release of the year. The film sees him join hands with lensman-turned-director Prem Kumar, who had previously worked with Vijay in Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom.
Vijay Sethupathi also has Super Deluxe, Seethakathi, Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam and Karthik Subbaraj’s next yet-untitled project with superstar Rajinikanth in the offing. Amid all these projects, Vijay will be seen making his Kannada debut via upcoming project Akhaada, which he had originally signed even before he rose to stardom.
The project, for reasons unknown, has been on the floors for nearly four years. Apparently, the film was cleared by the censors last week and the team has begun promotions. It has to be seen if Vijay will take time out to promote the film. He had signed this project when he was shooting for Tamil cop drama Sethupathi. Interestingly, he plays the negative role in this project.
