Vijay Sethupathi’s ‘Seethakathi’, which has already generated huge expectations, is slated to hit the screens on October 5.
Interestingly, the actor’s other film ‘Chekka Chivantha Vaanam’, directed by Mani Ratnam, is scheduled to see the light of the day on September 28. So, both ‘Seethakathi’ and ‘CCV’ are expected to have a clash in the box-office.
Written and directed by Balaji Tharaneetharan, ‘Seethakathi’ will have Vijay Sethupathi in the lead with dual role as father and son. Following the success of ‘Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom’ (2012), director Balaji Tharaneetharan began working on ‘Seethakathi’.
In an interview during January 2014, Balaji revealed that the film would be based on artists and would not be related to the tale of the philanthropist of the same name. Parvathy, Archana, Gayathrie, and veteran director Mahendran are doing key roles in this film.
