Anand Raj showed his versatility by also taking up comedic roles in several movies which were also liked by the audience. 


And now with Thalapathy 63, Anand Raj is combining with Vijay for the third time after Pokkiri (2007) and Viilu (2009). As an exclusive info, we came to know that Anand Raj will be playing an important role in the movie and can be expected to be seen in a new makeover for Thalapathy 63. It will be interesting to see whether the talented actor will be carrying a comedic role in the movie as he has been doing in recent times or as the terrifying villain like the old days. Whichever the role might be, Anand Raj will be delivering his best for the Thalapathy 63.
