Vijay Sethupathi’s toughest challenge in his upcoming film Vanhmam directed by Jai Krishna was mastering the Nagercoil Tamil slang. The film which deals about friendship is mostly dialogue-driven and explains how certain relationships fail due to words let out in anger. “As the story is set in Nagercoil, we had to speak Tamil with a Nagercoil slang, something that people who are not from the region can do. We might have come across Madurai slang or a Madras slang, but Nagercoil slang is completely different and that was my biggest challenge,” says Vijay Sethupathi to a daily.
Vanhmam has Vijay Sethupathi, Kreshna and Sunaina in lead roles. It has music by Thaman. The makers confirmed that the movie will hit the screens on November 21st.
