Vijay Is Dhanush's Villain
Dhanush's most ambitious project Vada Chennai finally went on floors in last month after numerous delays and several changes in casting. For this film, mass hero Vijay Sethupathi of Pizza and Nenu Rowdy Ne fame is being considered for main antagonist role.
Both Dhanush and Vijay Sethupathi are very good friends. It may be mentioned here that, Dhanush was the producer for Nenu Rowdy Ne Tamil version which was a big hit there. Therefore, Vijay may not reject the proposal, opine analysts.
Vada Chennai is a gangster trilogy film to be made as three parts. For the reason that, villain is essential and will have almost equal importance that of protagonist, the makers want a talented and popular actor.
Initially, Rangam fame Jiiva was approached for the role, but the actor refused with a fear of getting negative image. He certainly never played a character with negative shades previously.
If Vijay Sethupathy comes on board for the film, the prospects will be multiplied. Directed by Vetrimaaran, Vada Chennai has Amala Paul playing female lead opposite Dhanush.
