Vijay Sethupathi has been on a roll for quite a long time. If there is an award for someone who has many projects in his kitty, Vijay Sethupathi will win it hands down. He was seen in 5 films in 2018 and three of them were well received at the box office too. They are 96, Chekka Chivandha Vaanam and Imaikka Nodigal. Seethakkaadhi was appreciated by the critics but it did not go well with the general public.
Coming to 2019, Sethupathi opened his innings with the hit film Petta where he charged his guns with the mighty Rajinikanth. 2019 will witness the Makkal Selvan in Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s Super Deluxe, Manikandan’s Kadaisi Vivasayi, Arunkumar’s Sindhubaadh and Seenu Ramasamy’s Maamanidhan. He is foraying into Telugu too with Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. He is also doing a film for director Vijay Chander.
Now, for his latest film signing, he would be directed by a newcomer Delhiprasad Deenadayal and the film is titled Tugluq. As per Kollywood sources, this film is a political one and perhaps that justifies the title. Balaji Tharaneetharan is writing the dialogues for this film while the 96 sensation Govind Vasantha will be composing music. Lalitkumar, who was the distributor of 96, will be funding this film.
Delhiprasad is a Film Institute product and has worked as an assistant with many directors that include 96's Premkumar. That explains the crew that has most of 96 team members. Whatever it is, Vijay Sethupathi’s films definitely raise expectations and let’s hope that's the case in the future as well!Read More
