Few channels have been claiming this to be fake news and others as rumors. But there seems to be certainly interesting as something interesting had happened. If what we hear from the close sources is believed to be true, Vijay Sethupathi was approached by Siruthai Siva to play the baddie opposite Ajith Kumar and in fact the former was so much impressed with the role.
In fact, Vijay Sethupathi has always been a strong admirer of Ajith Kumar and sharing the screen space with him could be the biggest thing that he had never imagined. But the thing that kept him away is the projects that are lined up including KV Anand’s big budget film, which will be shot for a very long period. It is noteworthy that the same reason of long scheduled dates turned Sivakarthikeyan to opt out and Vijay Sethupathi replaced him.
