Yesterday actor Sudeep, who made is Tamil debut with ‘Naan’ Ee’ confirmed that he will be playing the role of the antagonist in the flick. Now we have come to know that the same actor has confirmed the inclusion of yesteryear heroine Sridevi in the film.
Sudeep has said in a interview to a leading daily newspaper that “Vijay and I have met a couple of times at social dos. Considering we both are silent, it was quite a task to interact with each other (laughs).
For an actor of his stature having another actor of equal stature from another industry is a big deal. A lot of people, including Sridevi have been roped in. I am very excited to work with him and looking forward for the project to take off”.
While it was being said for the past few weeks that Sirdevi is being approached for a important role in ‘Vijay 58’ it is Sudeep who has confirmed her inclusion in the flick.
Sridevi who was the leading heroine in Tamil in 1980’s shifted base to Tollywood and Bollywood. She was a leading heroine until late 90’s before he settled in family life with famour Bollywood produced Boney Kapoor. After a 15 year hiatus. She made a powerful comeback in the lead role in ‘English Vinglish’ directed by Gauri Shinde that released in 2012.
