It was unfortunate when an untitled film starring Vikranth had been dropped. The film was going to have dialogues penned by Vijay Sethupathi and the actor had even co-written the script of this project, which was going to be helmed by Vikranth’s brother Sanjeev. However, we then reported that they were set to re-unite for another film. Our sources had earlier informed us that this film will be based on North Chennai's boxing culture. Vijay Sethupathi will be writing the screenplay for it. Now, the latest update is that Vikranth and Vishnu Vishal are to be in the lead roles in this new venture.
According to our source, “Sanjeev’s next directorial will have his brother Vikranth in the film as one of the lead actors. The other lead actor will be Vishnu Vishal. Vijay Sethupathi will be resuming his role as the screenplay writer. Official confirmation is expected soon.” Earlier there were rumours that the lead actor would be playing dual roles but the makers must have taken the other route and cast two different actors altogether.
What is left to be seen though is how would Vijay Sethupathi manage his time for this project along with all his other acting commitments going on. He is currently awaiting the release of his debut Telugu flick Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and his debut Malayalam film Mathai Marconi. According to several reports, he will also be playing the main villain in an upcoming Telugu movie that will have Megastar Chiranjeevi’s nephew Vaishnav Tej as the hero. Stay tuned for more updates.
