Vijay Sethupathi seems to be going through the best phase in his career with quite a few interesting films in his kitty. A film with Mani Ratnam, another film with Paneerselvam tilted Karuppan and another one with Kumararaja titled Super Deluxe are the few films under his belt at the present moment. Speaking about Karuppan, director Paneerselvam said that the film will have Vijay Sethupathi playing a bull-tamer and will be a visual treat for the fans of the actor.
“Vijay Sethupathi sir essays a bull tamer and the way he has transformed into the character was amazing. I would narrate the scene to him, but his presentation would make all the difference. In terms of action, it’s a visual treat to his fans. Women will hail the film,” a report in DC quoted director Paneerselvam.
Paneerselvam also spoke about the kind of diction and dialogues delivery Vijay would have and said, “Right from the beginning, Sethupathi told me not to have any punch dialogues. His unique dialogue delivery will do the magic.”
The director also heaped praises on Vijay Sethupathi for his humble nature and simplicity. “He is a simple and wonderful human being. We shot in Dindigul, and Vijay would go to the villagers’ houses and dine with them. He is perfect for the sobriquet Makkal Selvan,” said Paneerselvam.
Karuppan will also feature Bobby Simha in an important role and speaking about him, the director said, “He portrays a villainous character and came on board only on Sethupathi’s request. The character is not the clichéd loud villain. He is subtle in his actions, but the repercussions are massive. He expresses his negative emotions through his eyes only.”
