Vijay Sethupathi’s next hits floors today

Directors Pushkar-Gayathri duo’s third directorial venture Vikram Vedha, which has Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan in lead roles, starts rolling today.

Kathir of Kirumi fame, Shradhaa Srinath of U- Turn fame and Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar are also playing pivotal characters in the film.

After Sudha Kongara’s Irudhi Suttru (in both Tamil and Hindi, titled Saala Khadoos), Madhavan will appear as a police encounter specialist in Vikram Vedha.

Says Kathir, “I didn’t expect that I will get opportunity to share screen space with these two excellent actors. My characterisation will be something unique.”

The movie, it is said, will be spoken for its content, unique characterization and an excellent screenplay. Like how Maddy’s or Vijay Sethupathi’s characters are unique, Kathir’s characterization also will be unusual.

After appearing as a chocolate-boy or a dreamy romantic in many of his earlier films — Alaipayuthey, Kannathil Muthamittal, Tanu Weds Manu and Jodi Breakers — Madhavan took a hesitant step into the world of adventure and action, blood and bout in the 2012 Linguswamy-directed Vettai, where he plays a cowardly cop.
