Versatile actor Vijay Sethupathi will soon be seen in the highly ambitious ‘Junga’. And, as expected, this has created quite a buzz amongst his fans. Interestingly, he will not only be acting in it but also set to produce the film. During a recent chat with a leading daily, director Gokul revealed why Sethupathi decided to produce ‘Junga’. Talking about it, he said that the star took this decision as this is a very big project and involves a lot of money.
“When Junga’s script got ready, I narrated the story. After a few minutes of silence, he said he would himself produce the flick since the budget crossed more than `20 crore as budget! Sethupathi knows that the project involves a huge sum and didn’t want to put other producers under the knife. He said he’d come forward to produce it so that the film becomes his responsibility,” he added.
Besides this, he also revealed that a significant part of the film will be shot in France while the remainder will be shot in Chennai.
“60 percent of the shoot will take place in France, while the rest of it will be shot in Chennai, Tuticorin, Ramanathapuram, etc. Sayyeshaa is paired opposite him,” added Gokul.
Well, this one promises to be quite an ambitious project and go a long way in establishing Vijay Sethupathi as a bonafide superstar. We hope that it turns out to be successful at the box office. All the best!
