vijay sethupathi kamaal haasan

Lokesh Kanagaraj is all set to direct Kamal Haasan in his upcoming directorial Vikram. Earlier there were reports that actor-director Raghava Lawrence will be playing the antagonist in Vikram. Now apparently Raghava is no longer a part of this Kamal Haasan starrer.

According to the Times of India report, now that Raghava is not doing Vikram, Lokesh has apparently approached Vijay Sethupathi for the role of the villain.


Interestingly, Sethupathi has already played the villain in Lokesh’s recent blockbuster Master. The film featured Thalapathy Vijay in the lead role. So it’s most likely that Lokesh might approach Sethupathi for Vikram as well. If Sethupathi comes on board for Vikram, then this would be the first time when he will be sharing the screen space Kamal Haasan.

Last year, during a musical event by Ilaiyaraaja to celebrate the 60 years of Ulaganayagan, Sethupathi had revealed that he was approached to play a role in Indian but for some reasons he couldn’t take up that offer. The Super Deluxe actor had also expressed his desire to work with the Dasavathaaram actor.

Let’s hope Sethupathi’s wish does come true. Because it would be a sheer delight to watch him share the screen space with Kamal in the action thriller Vikram.
