Vijay Sethupathi, whose latest release was Vignesh Shivn's Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal, is excited about his next release, Vikram, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of Master fame. The Kamal Haasan-starrer also features Fahadh Faasil in an important role. With Vikram scheduled to hit the screens on June 3, the makers are on a promotional spree!
It is well known that Kamal Haasan will be playing a cop. Vijay Sethupathi, in an interview, tells one of the regional media houses, "My character in Vikram is close to my heart as it brings out the dark side of a human being. In general, I love to play the role of a villain, as it gives scope for intense performances. You can't compare my role in Master, with that of Uppena. Likewise, my character in Vikram will be different and talked about."
The Vikram Vedha actor, also, added he's eagerly looking forward to watching the film on the big screen. "I tried to give my best. I was very nervous as I had two powerhouse performers with me; Kamal sir and Fahadh Faasil. Working with them was the best thing I could have asked for. I'm a big fan of Kamal sir now!"
In an exclusive interview with us, Vijay Sethupathi said, "the journey has not been easy, but it is worthwhile."
He spoke about how he was grateful for a lot of things that he never thought would happen. "I never thought a film like Vikram would happen to me. I don't think I have met a responsible actor like Kamal sir. It took a while for me to understand his sensibilities, but what a star he is! He rises like a phoenix every time he falls.”
Vijay Sethupathi said Vikram was a blessing to him. “I trust the film will be an important turning point in my career, as well. I remember I had gone to the Nammavar shooting in 1994. Kari soru potaanga; nalla saapten. I got rejected by the makers, as they felt I was too young for the role I had auditioned for. (Laughs) I just saw Kamal sir from a distance. It is unbelievable that I play the villain in his film, now. Everything feels surreal!"
Up next, Vijay Sethupathi has Maamanithan, lined up for release. Also, he has Michael, Merry Christmas, Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir, Viduthalai, Gandhi Talks, and Mumbaikar, in different stages of production.
