    Mellisai: Vijay Sethupathi Signs 6th Project With Debutant

    By Ians

    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.
