Vijay Sethupathi to play the villain in Panja Vaisshnav Tej's debut Telugu film?
The actor is one of two people that has been been offered the role, the other being Dr.Rajasekhar
Megastar Chiranjeevi’s nephew, Panja Vaisshnav Tej, is all set to make his debut soon in a film that is slated to go on floors in March. Directed by debutant Buchi Babu Sana, an erstwhile associate of director Sukumar, the film will have Manisha Raj playing the female lead. We now hear that the makers are in talks with Vijay Sethupathi and Dr Rajasekhar for the villain role.
"The director has approached both actors with the offer, but is yet to get a nod from either of them. The makers are confident that one of them will accept the antagonist's role. Currently, Buchi Babu is working on the final version of the script," says a source.
Devi Sri Prasad is scoring the music for the untitled film which is set against the backdrop of the sea. To be bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers, along with Sukumar Writings, the project is tipped to be a rustic love story and is rumoured to showcase Vaisshnav as a fisherman.
