Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi will be making his debut in the Malayalam film industry with Marconi Mathai. The project was announced a few weeks ago and it is now confirmed that Vijay Sethupathi will be joining the sets in February.
Marconi Mathai will also have veteran actor Jayaram playing the lead role and he will be seen as an ex-army man working as a security in a bank. Reports are that radio plays a pivotal character in the film and Marconi stands for its inventor Guglielmo Marconi.
Vijay Sethupathi’s role in the film is yet to be revealed. The technical crew of Mathai Marconi includes Sajan Kalathil as the cinematographer, M Jayachandran as the music composer and Shameer Muhammed as the editor. The film is bankrolled under the banner Satyam Audios.
The shooting of Mathai Marconi is set to begin this month with the shooting schedules planned in various locations in Chennai, Goa, Ernakulam and Changanacherry. Mathai Marconi is a bilingual that will be made in Tamil and Malayalam given the popularity of its lead stars Jayaram and Vijay Sethupathi in the Malayalam and Tamil film industries respectively.
Vijay Sethupathi, it may be noted, will also be making his debut in the Telugu film industry with Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy this year. The shooting of this magnum opus is on and it is likely to make it to the silver screens for Dusshera.
It may be noted here that Vijay Sethupathi’s Seethakathi hit the marquee last month to positive reviews and his next outing at the theatres was with the Rajinikanth starrer Petta. This film has been directed by Karthik Subburaj and bankrolled by Kalanidhi Maran under his banner Sun Pictures.
The film saw Vijay Sethupathi play an important role and this was the first time he was seen sharing the screen space with Rajinikanth.
