Suddenly it seems like Southern actors have become highly sought after by our Bollywood people. South Indian superstar Vijay Sethupathi, who was recently seen in Kamal Haasan’s Vikram. He will be seen alongside Katrina Kaif in Merry Christmas.
And now we hear that Vijay Sethupathi has been hired to play a menacing villain in Shah Rukh Khan, with Jawan.
They are already working with Nayanthara, who is currently filming in Mumbai. Vijay was offered the role of the antagonist as the creators want to cast a powerful actor against the SRK lead. Last weekend, Noon reported that Rana Daggubati, who was initially offered the role of the villain. He had politely apologized for his health problems (sorry, but thanks, July 2). Vijay is already starring in some Hindi projects. That including director duo Raj-DK Farzi’s web series, Sriram Raghavan’s Merry Christmas and Santosh Sivan Mumbaikar’s action thriller. However, we’ve heard that Vijay is still trying to figure out his dates to see if Jawan can fit into his schedule. So hopefully Makkal Selvan, as he is known, will be seen as the villain.
Directed by Atlee, Jawan was staged on a large scale and the creators were eager to put it together. Vijay will soon join the film’s sets in Mumbai.
