Though Vijay has acted in more than 58 movies, the actor is yet to play character set in South Tamil Nadu. In past, Suriya was seen as an angry Nalloor (Thoothukdi) cop in Singam, Ajith was seen as a Thoothukoodi gangster in Attakasam and Vikram was seen as badass Thirunelveli cop in Saamy.
Interestingly, all the above said films churned out great profits and earned good fan base for the actors. Now, Vijay’s upcoming film with director Bharathan will also be set in Thirunelveli/Thoothukudi backdrop.
Shooting for the untitled film will commence by May and Vijaya Productions, who funded Veeram will be bankrolling the project.
