Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi is all set to make his debut in the Malayalam film industry soon. According to reports, the film will be directed by Sajan Kalathil, who has scripted the film with Rejish Midhila. While Vijay Sethupathi will be playing the lead role, veteran actor Jayaram will also be seen in an important role.

Sources in the know say that the film is titled Marconi Mathai and Jayaram’s character in it is named Mathai. Also, the radio plays a pivotal character in the film and Marconi stands for its inventor Guglielmo Marconi.

Jayaram will be playing an ex-army man employed as a security man in a bank and will be seen romancing Anna, who plays a sweeper at the same bank. Vijay Sethupathi’s role in the film is yet to be revealed. The technical crew of Marconi Mathai 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 Marconi Mathai will begin in January next year with the shooting schedules planned in various locations in Chennai, Goa, Ernakulam and Changanacherry. It is a bilingual film 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.

It may be noted here that Vijay Sethupathi’s Seethakathi hit the marquee yesterday and the star’s next outing at the theatres would be the Rajinikanth starrer Petta. This film is directed by Karthik Subburaj and bankrolled by Kalanidhi Maran under his banner Sun Pictures. This would be the first time Vijay Sethupathi shares screen space with Rajinikanth.
