There were reports that seasoned actor Sarath Kumar has been roped in for Vijay's upcoming film Thupaki. It was also said that the actor-turned-politician will be seen in a powerful role in the upcoming Tamil film. However, he has denied the rumours and claimed that those are baseless reports.
Sarath Kumar has said that neither AR Murugadoss nor his team members have contacted him. The reports of him doing the important character are false. The speculations were rife that the actor, who has been acting in multi-starrer films of late, has continued the trend.
However, Thupaki directed by AR Murugadoss is a gangster film set in the backdrop of Mumbai and centred around the life in the streets of the commercial capital. The film produced by Kalaipuli S Dhanu also features Kajal Aggarwal, Vidyut Jamal, Akshara Gowda and others in the cast.
