Vijay Sethupathi's next film Junga is all set to release on July 27. The star's schedule is a choc-a-block one, all riddled with interviews and promotions. But all the interviews are more curious about something else, his next venture, where he will be starring alongside none other than superstar Rajinikanth! Naturally, the excitement for it is already at its peak. The movie is being directed by Karthik Subbaraj. This and his other upcoming movie Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, directed by Mani Ratnam have been creating quite a buzz.
In a recent chat, Vijay Sethupathi said that he will begin shooting for the Rajini film in the month of August, in Chennai. He went on to add that Karthik Subbaraj had guaranteed him long back (during the making of Iraivi) that he will definitely have a part, if and when the director does a film with the Superstar. Sethupathi will be playing the antagonist in the movie, and his portions would be wrapped next month. A lot of sparks are expected from the scenes involving him and Thalaiva. Sets that resemble Madurai are being constructed in the city.
This Sun Pictures production will see Simran paired opposite Rajinikanth. The actress, who couldn't act with Rajini during her prime years as a hotshot commercial heroine in the late 1990s and early 2000s, has now finally bagged the prestigious opportunity to be part of a Rajini film.
Some media reports have also said that Rajini plays a warden and a mentor-like figure to college students at a hostel.
