On his birthday on Tuesday, Vijay Sethupathi’s first look in his upcoming film Seethakaathi, which sees him teaming up with his Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom (NKPK) director Balaji Tharaneetharan, was revealed.
The look, which showed Vijay Sethupathi as an elderly man, has been designed by Oscar-winning makeup artiste Kevin Haney and Alex Noble.
For the old man look, Vijay Sethupathi went to the US for a special makeup test done by Academy Award winners Kevin Haney and Alex Noble.
Sources say that it takes nearly four hours for the actor to get ready for the character and National Award winning Archana is said to be his pair in the film.
The poster features Vijay Sethupathi with prosthetic makeup which authentically portrays him as a veteran drama artist.
“Last month, Vijay Sethupathi and I had flown to Los Angeles to meet the makeup artistes to get the mould and wig designed for this prosthetic makeup. We have started shooting Vijay Sethupathi’s portions only now,” says the director.
