Vijay Sethupathi is in demand, nowadays. While his next film Naduvula Konja Pakkatha Kaanom is slated for release this month end, the actor has already got three more films in his kitty. “I will begin shooting for a film titled Rummy, from this month end. The movie will be directed by a newcomer Balaguru. Inigo Prabhakaran and I play the lead roles in the flick set in the year 1987,” he says.
Vijay, who debuted in Seenu Ramasamy’s acclaimed film Thenmerkku Paruvakkaatru, says he has found another potential talent from the reality show Naalaiya Iyakkunar called Nalan and is doing his next film titled Soodhu Kavvum. Producer C V Kumar, who made Atta Kathi and Pizza is producing the film and Sanchita Shetty, who played the lead role in Kollaikaran, is playing the female lead. Another project Vijay has signed is titled Pannaiyarum Padminiyum which has been adapted from a short film by the same name. It will be directed by a newcomer Arun Kumar who made the short film as well.
“In the last one year, I have come across so many good scripts that I struggle to give dates to all of them. I have asked them to go ahead with actors and if they could wait, I will definitely take up one by one,” smiles Vijay.
Meanwhile, his Naduvula Konja Pakkatha Kaanom has been cut down by 20 minutes to make it crispier. One of the songs from the music album ‘Omlette Potta’ has been included in the film as a breather before the second half of the film begins.
JSK Films that has procured the negative rights of NKPK, is planning to release in over 150 centres across the State.
