You read it first on Chennaivision: Vijay Sethupathi in Indian 2

Almost a week ago, it was Chennaivision.com which broke the news that accepting a request from Vijay Sethupathi, Kamal Haasan would accomodate him in one of his projects, either in Indian 2 or in Thalaivan Irukkiran.

Now, other media houses are reporting that the 96 and Sangathamizhan actor is likely to play the antagonist in Indian 2 directed by Shankar.

With a huge star cast consisting of Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet, Priya Bhavani Shankar and Bobby Simha, it will be interesting to see how Vijay Sethupathi’s character will lock horns with the lead character in the film.

Vijay Sethupathi has adjusted his dates and has grabbed the opportunity this time. It is rumoured that the actor has been roped in as the antagonist. However, there is no clarity on what kind of role Vijay Sethupathi is playing in Indian 2.

He is expected to begin shooting for his portions from mid-February 2020, according to reports. The film, produced by Lyca Production boasts of an ensemble star cast and has music by Anirudh Ravichander.

Speaking at the Kamal60 event in Chennai on last week, Vijay Sethupathi said: “The anecdotes narrated by Nassar sir, Sathyaraj sir, and Vadivelu sir here are a big learning lesson for all of us.

They shared how creator Kamal operates on the sets. These are nothing but a glimpse of his Kamal sir’s thought process. I wish someone to interview all the co-stars of Kamal sir, it will help many young generation actors out there”.

He added: “I had the privilege to act with Rajinikanth sir and understood his thought process. I also got an opportunity to act with Kamal sir in Indian-2 but missed it due to various reasons. Now, I openly ask him. “Sir, please give me a chance to work with you”.”

The 96 and Sangathamizhan actor added: “I didn’t watch many films in my childhood. Had I watched a few films of Kamal sir, wouldn’t have entered into cinema because his work is phenomenal”.

Vijay Sethupathi also said: “Kamal sir loves cinema. He never took audiences for granted but now Kamal sir left cinema for politics. I’m sure he will not disappoint the general public. I loved his political party name ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’ and the idea of unity behind its logo”.
