After playing a negative role in superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Petta’, it seems Vijay Sethupathi is now getting ready to do the same for Vijay’s next film, which is to be helmed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of ‘Maanagaram’ fame.
If sources are to be believed, the team has approached Vijay Sethupathi to play the baddie in the film, tentatively titled ‘Thalapathi-64’, and the actor will take a decision soon.
The film’s poster was released on Saturday evening and producer Xavier Britto said in a statement, “I am extremely glad and elated to announce the association with Thalapathy Vijay after a long period.
Previously, I had the opportunity to produce three movies of Thalapathy Vijay and I am very proud to inform you all officially, #Thalapathy64 (tentative title) will kick-start soon, under our banner – XB Film Creators.”
Lokesh, whose second directorial venture ‘Kaithi’ with Karthi is getting ready for release, posted: “Yes! It’s official now #Thalapathy64 thank u Vijay na🏻 #Summer2020 pic.twitter.com/lK33BnWdtb.”
