Andrea opposite Vijay Sethupathi?

Andrea joins Vijay’s next directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj

Andrea Jeremiah, who is known for picking quality roles, has been roped in to play a significant role in Vijay’s upcoming film directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. It is reported that Lokesh had met Andrea to narrate the script of Thalapathy 64 and the actress was impressed by it.

Says the director, “Yes, Andrea is part of our film. We’d started shooting the film a few days ago and had filmed with the artistes we’d already cast. There was this character that I have written and we were looking for actresses to play this part. We finally zeroed in on Andrea.”

This is the first time Andrea Jeremiah will share screen space with Vijay. “#Vijay64 @andrea_jeremiah has been roped to play a important role in #Thalapathy64 Team is heading to Delhi for next schedule @XbFilm,” tweeted XB Film Creators, the banner that is bankrolling the film.

Touted to be a mass entertainer, the film will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, who released his film, Karthi-starrer Kaithi, along with Vijay’s Bigil this Deepavali. Fans are excited for this collaboration as Lokesh Kanagaraj is known for his gritty and fast-paced films.

Vijay Sethupathi, who is busy with his other projects, will join the team of Thalapathy 64 in the coming months. A few weeks ago, the makers of Thalapathy 64 announced that Malavika Mohanan will make her debut as a full-fledged heroine in this film. She was last seen in Rajinikanth’s Petta in a brief role.

Producer S Xavier Britto, who is bankrolling Thalapathy 64 under his banner XB Film Creators, said he is elated with the opportunity to work with Vijay after a long time. “Previously, I had the opportunity to produce three movies (Sendhoorapandi, Rasigan, Deva) of Thalapathy Vijay and I’m proud to inform you all officially, Thalapathy 64 will kick-start soon,” he said in a press statement.
