As we had reported earlier, Vijay Sethupathi will be penning the dialogues and screenplay for Thaakka Thaakka fame director Sanjeev's next film. The duo teamed up together for a film with Vikranth in the lead role, but the film was dropped due to reasons unknown. With a fresh script, they are teaming up again and this film will retain Vijay Sethupathi as the dialogue and screenplay writer, along with Sanjeev. We had also stated that it is a dual hero subject and will deal with the sport of boxing set in the North Chennai backdrop.
Our close sources now tell us that the two heroes will be Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in the lead roles. It is a known fact that Vishnu and Vikranth are very close friends and this is the first time they'd be playing the leads together for a film. The duo already shared screen space together in Thaakka Thaakka when Vishnu appeared in a cameo along with Arya and Vishal.
Vishnu is currently resting due to his neck spine problem and he is expected to start shooting for his already committed projects very soon. Post the completion of other projects, he will start works on this film which is said to go on floors later this year. More details regarding the rest of the cast and crew are awaited.
On the acting front, Vijay Sethupathi, who is awaiting the release of Super Deluxe, also has films like Sindhubaadh, Maamanithan, Kadaisi Vivasayi, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, and an untitled film with Vijay Chander in his kitty.
