Speculations are rife that actors Amy Jackson and Vijay Sethupathi will team up for director Gokul’s next movie, with the director even confirming that while talks are on with Amy, nothing has been finalised yet. According to a Deccan Chronicle report, Amy, who has finished her portions for the Rajinikanth-starrer 2.0, is yet to be on board for this project.
“Talks have been initiated with Amy, but we haven’t got her on board as of now. So, at this point, I won’t be able to confirm her inclusion,” Gokul told DC.
Incidentally, Vijay Sethupathi being a part of the project comes as no surprise as the director had hinted at a possible collaboration. “I will once again be directing Vijay Sethupathi, and it is not a sequel to Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara (2013). It is an action-comedy script and I am excited to start the project. We are still figuring out the dates and I am planning to wrap up this venture soon,” he said in December last year.
Gokul, who directed the fantasy horror Kaashmora last year, has reportedly begun working on the script for his second film with Vijay. The shoot is likely to begin in August.
Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi has a slew of films this year including Karuppan, a rural entertainer directed by R Paneerselvam, starring Lakshmi Menon, Bobby Simhaa, and Kishore. He is also likely to star in director Cheran’s comeback film.
He is currently shooting for Vikram Vedha with Madhavan. Written and directed by Pushkar and Gayathri, the cast includes Shraddha Srinath, Kathir, John Vijay and Varalakshmi Sarathkumar. He is also shooting for Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s Aneethi Kathaigal.
