Vijay Sethupathi, the man who has been ruling the Kollywood and resurrected the indie scene in Tamil cinema is raring to do a commercial mass entertainer. The critically acclaimed actor has started listening to scripts that would serve his appetite. We are really excited about this news and it would be interesting to see how the project actually takes shape. The talented actor already had two films this year, Rummy and Pannaiyaarum Padminiyum. While Rummy was a let down, the latter struck a chord with the audience and emerged as a decent hit.
With the number of projects already in his kitty, it is unlikely that any other actor would outnumber his films this year. Among his forthcoming films, Mellisai is in the last leg of the shooting with only one song left. And the Seenu Ramasamy directorial Idam Porul Eval is likely to kickstart after two weeks. Vijay is also embarking on his first production with the Aaranje Mittai for which the actor will also pen the dialogues. For an actor who had started his infamous entry to Tamil cinema years ago by doing cameo roles, he would reprise the same yet again in Siddarth starrer Jigarthanda and Partheeban’s Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam. But, the most expected film of Vijay turns out to be Purampokku for many reasons. Purampokku is a multi-starrer where Vijay will be seen alongside actors Arya and Shaam. It is directed by SP Jananathan, a hardhitting filmmaker and produced by UTV motion pictures.
