After delivering smash hit Dharmadurai last year, actor Vijay Sethupathi and National award-winning filmmaker Seenu Ramasamy are teaming up for the fourth time for a project titled Mamanithan, and it will be produced by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Even though Ramasamy is yet to lock his script, Vijay Sethupathi agreed to come on board as he was impressed with the film’s idea. The project, according to reliable sources, will only roll from the second half of the year. It is believed that the actor plays a politician in the film and it is supposed to be based on the life of a leader from south India.  

Vijay had said in the past that he will never hesitate to work with Ramasamy, who is known for giving the former his big break with Thenmerku Paruvakaatru. The duo had also worked in a film called Idam Porul Yaeval, which is still struggling to find a release. Vijay agreed to do Dharmadurai because Idam Porul Yaeval, despite being completed long back, has been lying in the cans for a very long time. This year, they hope to bring the film out.

Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi will be seen playing a theatre artist in his 25th film Seethakathi, which will see him reunite with Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom director Balaji Tharaneetharan. This year, he also has other interesting projects such as Vikram Vedha, 96 and Karuppan.
