Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi says the reason he agreed to be a part of Vikram was that he wanted a chance to work with Kamal Haasan. While he was excited about the prospect of the film, which also stars Fahadh Faasil, he does not know what to expect from the film.

In an interview given to the Deccan Herald, Sethupathi was quoted saying, “I took up the movie only to act with Kamal sir. I admire him a lot. At this stage, I don't know what to expect from the movie.”

Vikram was announced last week and will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. A poster was released which saw Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil in it. The poster went viral and was the talk of the town across industries. The collaboration of three massive actors for a movie made it an obvious eye-catcher. 


Kanagaraj is a relative newcomer who made his directorial debut in 2016 in the anthology, Aviyal. He shot to fame with his third movie, Kaithi, released in 2019 starring Karthi. His last film was Master, a massive project that saw Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi in a much-awaited movie that went on to be a success amidst the pandemic.

Vijay Sethupathi, who was a part of Uppenna, a Telugu romantic drama that opened to good reviews in 2021, is keeping busy at work. The Soodhu Kavvum star is getting ready for a Bollywood debut with Mumbaikkaar, co-starring Vikrant Massey. The movie directed by Santosh Sivan will be a remake of the 2017 Tamil film Maanagaram, which was directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.
