Actor Vijay Sethupathi has confirmed that he is in talks with Bollywood actor Aamir Khan for an upcoming film. Reports of them working together for a film started doing the rounds after Aamir recently visited the sets of Sanga Tamizhan to meet Vijay Sethupathi.
According to a PTI report, Sethupathi said that details about the film will be revealed soon, “We are in talks and details will be announced soon.” It is not yet known if this will be his Bollywood debut.
As reported recently, Aamir Khan is likely to star in the Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha, directed by Pushkar and Gayatri who also made the Tamil original in 2017. Reports initially said Shah Rukh Khan will play Sethupathi’s role in Hindi version, and Madhavan reprises his role from the original. However, Filmfare recently confirmed that Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan will star in the remake, and the film begins shoot in 2020. It is said that Aamir met Vijay Sethupathi to speak about his character in Vikram Vedha. An official announcement about the film is awaited.
Sethupathi was at the International Film Festival of Melbourne in Australia, where he won the Best Actor award for Super Deluxe (2019). The film was also nominated under the Best Director and Best Film categories. Director Thiagrajan Kumararaja and actress S Gayathrie were also at the festival.
Shoot for Vijay Sethupathi and Raashi Khanna starrer Sanga Tamizhan, directed by Vijay Chander, is on, and the actor is currently also busy with SP Jananathan’s Laabam with Shruti Haasan. His Muttiah Muralidharan biopic is likely to begin shoot by September, after he completes training in cricket for the role. The film is directed by MS Sripathy and produced by Rana Daggubati and DAR Motion Pictures. Sethupathi also has Kadaisi Vivasayi, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Maamanithan, Uppena, and Idam Porul Yaeval under production.
Aamir Khan was seen in the 2017 film Secret Superstar, and last year in Thugs of Hindostan.
