For the first time in his career, Vijay Antony will play a tough police officer in a film titled ‘Thimiru Pudichavan’, to be directed by newcomer Ganesha.
Talking about the movie, the director says, “There will be power-packed action sequences and an intense drama. Instead of the regular hero-villain kind of sequences, this one is a mind game.”
Stating that he waited for three years with this script, the filmmaker adds: “I was in no mood to settle for someone else for the role as I felt only Vijay Antony would be apt for it. Eventually, things fell in place and Vijay was on board.”
To be produced by Fatima Vijay Antony, the film, which will have music and editing by Vijay Antony himself, will have cinematography by Richard M Nathan. Shooting will start from February 7.
