Ritika Singh of Irudhi Suttru-fame plays Sandhya in director Balaji K Kumar's upcoming investigative thriller, Kolai, featuring Vijay Antony in the lead.

Already, the team Kolai disclosed that John Vijay plays a cop called Mansoor Ali Khan in the film, which has Siddhartha Shankar playing Sathish, the boyfriend of the central character, Leila.

Meenakshi Chaudhary plays Leila, who gets murdered in Kolai. The gripping investigative thriller also features Murali Sharma and Raadika Sarathkumar, among others. While Murali Sharma plays an agent called Aditya, Radikaa Sarathkumar plays the boss, Rekha.

Rumours doing the rounds in the industry suggest that Vijay Antony plays a detective in Kolai. Sources say that the story of the film, which has triggered huge expectations, was finalised after the director wrote over 40 drafts of it in five years!

Kolai is produced by Infiniti Film Ventures and Lotus Pictures.

Reportedly inspired by a real incident that happened in New York in 1923, the film has cinematography by Sivakumar Vijayan, editing by Selva RK, stunt choreography by Mahesh Mathew, and music by Girishh Gopalakrishnan of Mookuthi Amman-fame.

Speaking about his choice of films as an actor in an interview with an English daily, Vijay Antony says, his decision to do a film is always an emotional one. “Intelligent decisions may fail you but one’s instincts cannot. It’s like choosing a life partner...it cannot be an analytical, calculative decision.”

Candidly, Vijay Antony adds he doesn't want to identify himself as an ambitious person. “I’m just trying to improve myself little by little, giving myself all the time I need. Considering I’ve come so far from nothing, after losing so much early on in life, everything I get is a bonus.”

Vijay Antony, on the other hand, has a slew of films such as Ratham, Valli Mayil, Agni Siragugal, Mazhai Pidikkaadha Manidhan, Pichaikkaran 2, Khaki, and Thamezharasan, in different stages of production.
