Subscribe to Filmibeat
Tamil cinema's overnight poster boy Vijay
Sethupathi, who has scored multiple hits with films such as
Pizza, Soodhu Kavvum and Naduvula
Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom with debut directors, has signed
thriller Mellisai with another first-time director. This
movie is being directed by debutant Ranjith.
Talking to IANS, Vijay Sethupathi said, "I'm more interested in
the story than the person who will direct it. Luckily, most of my
projects so far have been with debutants because I was impressed
with their stories. I don't do any and every film by a debutant
that comes my way. I have also turned down a few projects."
The actor is currently busy juggling between four projects, but
still he went ahead and signed the movie Mellisai. Vijay
Sethupathi said, "I remember saying it recently that I won't sign
any new projects this year, but I was so hooked on by the story of
this film that I couldn't let go of it. I may get busier, but I'm
happy that I didn't let go of a good project and I will continue
doing such different films."
With four back-to-back blockbusters, Vijay Sethupathi is
awaiting the release of Tamil rural comedy Rummy and comedy-drama
Pannaiyarum Padminiyum, also with debutant directors.
