Vijay Sethupathi, who is first time sharing the screen space with superstar Rajinikanth in ‘Petta’, has confirmed that he is playing the villain in the movie directed by Karthik Subbaraj.
Speaking at the music launch of ‘Petta’ on Sunday night, he said, “Eppodhume, periya aala edhirthaadhan naamum periya aal. So I play a villain in Petta.”
He said further: “Acting with Rajini sir is a dream come true experience. Not even in my wild dreams, I have thought of acting alongside such a star of his stature.”
The ‘Pizza’ and ‘Sethupathi’ actor added: “Karthik Subbaraj always thinks about cinema and he has surprised me always with amazing content. Petta is full of surprises. You will be hooked to the end.”
Sasikumar, who is playing an important role in the film, said, “Even today Rajini sir comes to the sets ahead of time for shooting. He is someone who takes his craft seriously. He is always on the sets and doesn’t go to the caravan. Each and every scene has come out well. Please don’t quit films, sir. Continue acting. Every director dreams to make a film for superstar. I also have such ideas.”
