Sunil, elder brother of actor Vaibhav, is playing the antagonist role in Vijay Sethupathi’s Seethakaathi, which is scheduled for a worldwide release on December 20.
“In fact, the pursuit of finding a befittingly perfect actor for this role turned to be a huge challenge on my part of casting. It’s incisively because of the character’s nature indeed. While penning the script, we had a clear vision that the antagonist’s role shouldn’t be a shop-soiled and should have freshness. I happened to meet actor Vaibhav’s elder brother Sunil at a birthday bash and instantly found my antagonist. He was pretty nervous and was completely reluctant to take up the auditions. But, he gave a try and eventually got into the shoes of his role followed by short-term acting course. I am sure, audience will take back home not just the celebrated Seethakaathi (Vijay Sethupathi), but this humorous antagonist, whose character will be on par with Bags’ role in Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom,” says filmmaker Balaji Tharaneetharan.
Seethakaathi is produced by Passion Studios and has music composed by 96 fame Govind Vasantha.
