Director Vasanthabalan to rope in Bigg Boss Tamil fame Vanitha Vijayakumar for his upcoming film, starring Kaithi fame Arjun Das in the lead.
Vasanthabalan, who has helmed critically-acclaimed movies like Veyil, Angadi Theru and Kaaviya Thalaivan, is currently busy with his next project, which will also be produced by him, under the banner, Urban Boyz Studios. The untitled movie has Arjun Das and Dushara Vijayan playing lead roles, along with Arjun Chidambaram and veteran dancer Shanta Dhananjayan. The movie is touted to be a slice-of-the-life drama, similar to the director’s previous movies. Arjun, who was last seen in Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Master, shot to fame with the director’s second film, Kaithi, which won him fans for his performance and baritone voice.
The latest addition to the film’s cast is actress Vanitha Vijayakumar who shot to fame with Bigg Boss Tamil, in recent times. This will mark Vanitha’s re-entry to Kollywood after her 2015 film, MGR Sivaji Rajini Kamal.
Arjun Chidambaram, who will be seen playing an important role in the film, was last seen in the role of an antagonist in Vinoth’s Ajith-starrer Nerkonda Paarvai. He is currently part of Mani Ratnam’s much-awaited magnum opus, Ponniyin Selvan, in the role of Madhurandhagan.

Meanwhile, Dushara Vijayan, who is playing the movie’s female lead, is over the moon for the appreciation pouring over her recent outing, Sarpatta Parambarai. She will next be seen in Shankar’s big-budget flick, Indian 2.
According to a report in TOI, she said that Vasanthabalan approached her during the shooting of Indian 2, where she was asked to do a look test with Arjun Das, after which she was brought on board. She also revealed that her character in Vasanthabalan’s film will be completely contrasting to what she had played in Sarpatta Parambarai.
GV Prakash will compose tracks for the movie. Interestingly, Prakash is awaiting the release of Jail, which was also directed by Vasanthabalan.
