Vijay Sethupathi has announced that Lalith’s 7 Screen Studio will be producing his new film titled Thuglak which will be directed by debutant Delhi Prasad.
An announcement in this regard was made by the Soodhu Kavvum and Sethupathi actor at the 100th day celebrations of his recent flick 96 in Chennai.
Lalith is the Tamil Nadu distributor of 96 and he is the one who helped the film from the financial crisis. Balaji Tharaneetharan is writing the dialogues and the team is planning to go on the floors by June, in Chennai.
The shooting will commence once Vijay Sethupathi completes the shoot of his ongoing film Maamanithan. The actor also has Chiranjeevi starrer Tollywood magnum opus Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and other projects in his hand.
Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi is facing criticism from various quarters after he said in a recent media interaction that he supported the stand of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the Sabarimala issue, and he is a fan of the communist leader.
“The Chief Minister is right on the Sabarimala issue. I don’t understand why there is so much ruckus about it. Women have to bear certain pain every month,” he reportedly said.
The actor added: “We all know why it happens it is a holy thing thanks to which we are here… if there’s no menstruation, there won’t be any men. Hence women are equivalent to Gods.”
His comments have earned criticism on social media.
