Even as Vijay is completing work on Bigil now, work on his next — which is being directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj — has begun. The latest on the film is that Vijay Sethupathi has been roped in to play the antagonist, while Petta girl Malavika Mohanan will be cast as the female lead.
A source in the know says, “Vijay Sethupathi really liked the role he was offered, and he said a ‘yes’ immediately. Malavika also did a look test for her role, and was brought on board soon after that. The film will go on floors in October as soon as Lokesh’s Kaithi hits screens, and the two will join the team soon after.” Said to be a gangster film, the movie will have music by Anirudh Ravichander.Source:Entertainment
