During a recent interaction with a leading website, actor John Vijay—who is best known for his unique mannerisms—revealed that Pushkar-Gayathri were actually quite keen to cast him in their recent blockbuster ‘Vikram Vedha’. He went on to add that he could not accept their offer and allocate dates as he was busy shooting for ‘CIA’.
“I was badly wanting to but didn’t act in Vikram Vedha. In fact after narrating the story to Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan, Pushkar-Gayathri called me to tell me the story. However, I was stuck with Dulquer Salmaan’s Comrade in America. CIA’s shoot was set in the United States of America However hard Pushkar Gayathri tried to fit in my dates, I was not able to make it for Vikram Vedha and I am eagerly waiting to act in their next film,” he added.
Well, we hope that John Vijay—who has previously worked with Pushkar-Gayathri in films such as ‘Va’—gets an opportunity to work with Pushkar-Gayathri once again.
On a related note, ‘Vikram Vedha’ was a crime-thriller and hit screens in July. Featuring Vijay Sethupathi and R Madhavan in the lead, it was based on the stories of Vikram and Betaal and grabbed attention thanks to its gripping screenplay.
Interestingly, it recently completed 50 days at the box office and gave those associated with it a big reason to rejoice.
