Vijay Sethupathi may have penned dialogues for his own production venture Orange Mittai where he played the lead, but for the first time the actor is writing the screenplay and dialogues for another hero’s movie. VSP will be taking this new avatar for actor Vikranth’s new film, directed by the Vikranth’s brother Sanjeev. The brothers had previously collaborated for the critically acclaimed movie Thakka Thakka.
“Actually, the script I wrote was meant for Sethu. When I approached him and narrated the gist of it, he said he liked the story and suggested that it would be apt for Vikranth. Not just that, he also asked if he could write the dialogues for the film,” Sanjeev reveales to DC.
Sanjeev is wondering as to how Sethupathi, who is extremely busy and shooting back to back, would manage this feat. “But Vijay Sethupathi promised that he would do it whenever he gets spare time in between shoots. Sticking to his word, he would call me at night after completing the day’s heavy work and would sit with me for story and screenplay discussions. He also penned the dialogues himself. His contribution is invaluable to the film. Both Vikranth and I will remain ever grateful to Vijay Sethupathi sir for what he has done with the intention of helping my brother.”
