Though reliable reports claimed that Vijay Sethupathi and Jiiva have been roped in by Vetrimaaran to play pivotal roles in his gangster thriller Vada Chennai, a close source to the team reveals that both of them have not signed the project yet.
“Vijay Sethupathi has lined up a bevy of projects in Tamil and it will be difficult for him to accommodate Vada Chennai although he wants to be a part of the film. Jiiva also needs to put aside more than 60 days of call sheet for the film and is yet to give his nod,’ the source adds.
Dhanush is currently shooting for director Durai Senthilkumar’s tentatively titled Kodi and is expected to start Vada Chennai in the second quarter of this year after wrapping up his ongoing assignment. Kodi features Trisha and Shamlee as female leads.
