The brilliant Vijay Sethupathi currently basking in the success of his two back-to-back villainous act in the Tamil and Telugu blockbusters Master and Uppenu, could soon be pulling off a hat-trick of vileness on screen.
He has has just been offered a film with Kamal Haasan to be directed by Lokesh Kanagraj.
“They have come to me with the offer. Yes, it is a villain’s role. But let’s see. We haven’t yet worked out the dates,etc. So it would be premature to say I am doing the film,” says Vijay ,taking time off from his hectic schedule to speak on his projects on hand.
So is he keen on giving the villain’s part one more try? “Yes, why not?I like exploring the dark side of human nature. By putting all the negative forces within me out there on screen I get to live a life that I’d never be able to live in real life. Did you find the two characters in Master and Uppena to be similar? Similarly if I agree to do one more villain’s part it would be to explore a darker shade of human nature than I’ve attempted so far.”
So is Vijay thinking seriously of doing Vikram? “Like I said they are yet to come to me to work out the details. So right now it would be premature , VERY premature, to say I am doing it. That film(Vikram) already has two great artistes on board Kamal Haasan and Fawadh Faasil . If I come on board , I must bring something special to the project. Or else there is no point to it.”
