'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi and acclaimed filmmaker Mysskin are teaming up for a full-fledged project for the first time titled Train and the excitement is as real as it gets. The upcoming film is being bankrolled by Kalaippuli S. Thanu under his V Creations, and the hit producer is known for some of Tamil cinema's biggest blockbusters and cult classics. Touted to be an action thriller, the story of Train is centered around a train journey, with Vijay Sethupathi undergoing a lot of changes for his looks for a different avatar, while Veeramae Vaagai Soodum (2022) fame Dimple Hayati has been roped in to play a meaty role.
Train will see Vijay Sethupathi and Dimple Hayati share screen space with several notable names among whom include Ira Dayanand, Nassar, Vinay Rai, Bhavana, Sampath Raj, Babloo Prithviraj, KS Ravikumar, Yugi Sethu, Ganesh Venkatraman, Kaniha, Diya Seetepalli, Singam Puli, Sriranjani, Ajay Rathnam, Thrigun Arun, Raichal Rabecca and others in supporting roles, with the first look poster also released. Mysskin, who has of late been exploring his musical side, will be composing the film's songs and the background score, while Fowzia Fathima is handling the cinematography, with Sri Watson in charge of the editing, and V Mayapandi overseeing the production design.
A formal pooja ceremony for Train was held on Friday morning, December 1, which saw the film's team pose for pictures with National Award-winning director Vetri Maaran, Nadigar Sangam President Nasser, Tamil Film Producer Council members Murali Ramasamy, Radhakrishnan, S Kathiresan, producer Anbu Chezhiyan, Kalyanam (Knack Studios) and others who conveyed their best wishes to the team. There is quite a lot of buzz for Train as the talk about Vijay Sethupathi and Mysskin joining hands for a film has been happening for quite some time, especially after the National Award-winning Tamil actor played an important cameo in the filmmaker's yet-to-be-released Pisasu 2.
