Actor Vijay Sethupathi is currently going through the best phase in his career with some interesting films under his belt. Vijay Sethupathi will be working with ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam for the first time on a film which will also feature Jyothika, Simbhu and Fahadh Faasil. Vijay will also be seen in a film titled Super Deluxe, the first look of which was recently released by the makers creating huge buzz around the film. The Vikram Vedha actor also has another film in his kitty titled Seethakathi which will be directed by Balaji Tharaneetharan who earlier directed Vijay in Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom.
Seethakathi will have Vijay Sethupathi playing three different roles – 30 year old, 50 year old and a 75 year old – which are set in different time period. And for one of the characters, Vijay Sethupathi will be working with Hollywood make-up artist Greg Cannon who has worked on films like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Mrs. Doubtfire and Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
“The 75-year-old character that Vijay will be playing is the lead character and what happens in his life forms the story. To make him look like a 75-year-old, the team will be flying to Los Angeles to meet the well-known makeup artiste, Greg Cannon. Greg has won three Academy Awards for the movies Mrs. Doubtfire, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Sethupathi’s look has been finalised by Viswanath Sundaram, but the team wants the prosthetics to be done, too. This will be a new experience for Sethupathi as well,” a report in TOI quoted a source.
Greg Cannon has also worked on Bollywood films like Fan and Kapoor Sons for Shahrukh Khan and Rishi Kapoor respectively.
