Veteran filmmaker who is currently busy with his directorial Kuttra Parambarai has reportedly signed a project where he will be seen playing the role of villain and pitted against singer-turned-actor Vijay Yesudas, who makes his lead role debut in the movie.
In a surprising move last year, Vijay Yesudas donned the grease paint for Maari and locked horns with Dhanush. Despite the film’s dismal box office performance, Vijay’s role was appreciated by few.
Titled Padai Veeran, the movie is said to be directed by one of Mani Ratnam’s erstwhile assistants. The movie will be officially announced soon and go on the floors from June last week, says a source close to the unit.
