Vijay Sethupathi to play antagonist in Shah Rukh Khan's Jawan?
Directed by Atlee, Jawan also stars Nayanthara, and the film’s music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander
Vijay Sethupathi, who was last in Maamanithan, has been reportedly roped in for the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jawan.
According to reports, Vijay Sethupathi will play the antagonist in Jawan, and the actor is expected to join the shoot in Mumbai in the coming weeks. Directed by Atlee, Jawan also stars Nayanthara, and the film’s music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander. However, no official announcement on this has been made by the makers.
Earlier, speaking about the film, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Jawan is a universal story that goes beyond languages, geographies and is for all to enjoy. Credit goes to Atlee for creating this unique film, which has also been a fantastic experience for me as I love action films!”
It may be noted that Vijay Sethupathi has played villain roles in films like the Vijay-starrer Master, Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram and the Telugu film Uppena.
On the other hand, reports are stating that Vijay Sethupathi will play the antagonist in the second part of Pushpa, starring Allu Arjun. While it is reported that the actor was initially approached to play a crucial role of a forest officer in the first part, he had to opt out due to time issues.
However, for the sequel, the makers have approached Vijay Sethupathi again, and he will likely share screen space with Allu Arjun. There may be a showdown between the characters of Allu Arjun, Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi.
