It is a known fact that Ilayathalapathy Vijay will be joining hands with his Azhagiya Tamil Magan director Bharathan for his 60th film, which is being referred as Vijay 60.
While the crew of the film was made known a few days ago, new addition to the already impressive cast, Daniel Balaji has opened up about his role in the upcoming film.
Speaking to Behindwoods, the Polladhavan actor has said his role would be pivotal in the movie, "I have finalized the project. Although there is already Jagapathy Babu in the film, I liked my track when I listened to the narration. Both our roles will be pivotal to the story line."
When asked about his character, Daniel has said that his role will be unique, much like his roles in some of the previous films like Kamal Haasan's Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu and Thala Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal.
"My role as Amudhan in 'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu' was a different one and in 'Yennai Arindhaal', even though I appeared in just one scene, it acted as a powerful trigger for Ajith's character to be influenced. In a similar breath, my character in 'Vijay 60' also will be unique which requires a unique kind of performance.
I have a full fledged role in the film which is quite massy. Bharathan felt that it would be better if I bulk up as I am a little slim now. By the time I go to the sets, I would put on some weight. I am happy and excited to be in Vijay sir's film," he has said.
He has also confirmed that the film will go on floors very soon, "The film goes on floors around the second week of April but I would join them after I complete my present assignments which include 'Mayavan', 'Ulta', '88' and also a Kannada film.
