It seems Vijay Sethupathi is playing a tribal leader in his upcoming film Karuppan, which is being directed by Panneerselvam of Renigunta fame.
Meanwhile, there is also a buzz that it is not in Karuppan, but Vijay Sethupathi will play the tribal leader in a film featuring Gautham Karthik in the lead. It will be directed by debutant Arumugakumar.
“Vijay Sethupathi loved the script. He’s a versatile actor and can play any type of role. In this one, he will be playing the role of a tribal leader,” sources said.
Kumki girl Lakshmi Menon is out of Karuppan in which she was set to star with Vijay Sethupathi for the second time after Rekka.
She has been replaced with young actress Tanya, who made her debut with Sasikumar in Bale Vellaiyatheva.
Talking about her role, she says, “I play a village girl in this film as well, but the role is completely different to the one I played in Bale Vellaya Theva.”
“Vijay Sethupathi is an experienced actor, so I get to learn more by sharing screen space with such an actor. He is friendly on the set and makes me feel comfortable,” she says.
