In what is a pointer to his growing reputation as a frontline/bankable hero, Vijay Sethupathi has been paired opposite the curvaceous ‘milky beauty’ Tamannaah in his upcoming film titled as Dharmadurai (title borrowed from a super-duper Rajini hit film of the late eighties).
Tamannaah, who has been a frontline actress in both Tamil and Telugu, had a super-duper hit film in Baahubali and her recent Telugu film Bengal Tiger has also been going great guns.
Vijay Sethupathi is fresh from the success of his latest film Naanum Rowdydhaan (produced by Dhanush) in which he got to pair up opposite Nayantara, the ‘numero uno’ of Tamil films.
Seenu Ramaswamy, who made the national award-winning Tenmerku Paruvakkaatru starring Vijay Sethupathi a few years back, would be directing the bearded hero for the third time in Dharmadurai which would be produced by Suresh. Seenu’s favourite Yuvan Shankar Raja would be scoring the music of the film.
It may be noted that Idam Porul Yaeval, which starred Vijay Sethupathi in the lead and was directed by Seenu Ramasamy, hasn’t released yet in theatres for many reasons though it had been wrapped up long back. Tamannaah reportedly said ‘yes’ to the project as the script was too ‘tempting’ for her to think twice!
