National award winning actor Thambi Ramaiah, who was last seen in the recently released film Yaan, has been roped in to play a significant role in Vijay’s upcoming film directed by Chimbudevan, warmly called by fans as Vijay 58. Thambi Ramaiah was also seen in Vijay’s last film Jilla where he dotingly used to call Vijay ‘Maapla’. Recently, Thambi Ramaiah rued that he missed Rajinikanth’s Lingaa due to prior commitments. Apparently, he was asked a 32-day call sheet by KS Ravikumar but could not accommodate dates for the film.
Thambi Ramaiah also plays a crucial role in Siddharth’s Kaaviya Thalaivan and Karthi’s Komban. He delivered one of his best performances in Parthiepan’s Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam which released in August.
Featuring Vijay, Hansika Motwani and Shruti Haasan in lead roles, Vijay 58 will go on the floors from November.
