It is also reported that the actor has rescheduled his other shooting commitments for Jawan and will join the next schedule in Chennai by the end of this month.
Jawan also stars Nayanthara, and the film’s music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander. The film will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. Vijay Sethupathi, who was last in 19(1)(a), has played villain roles in films like the Vijay-starrer Master, Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram and the Telugu film Uppena.
