Mahesh Babu and director Trivikram’s film is all set to go on floors very soon. The pre-production work is going on swiftly. Meanwhile the team is looking for a villain for this film.
Several names have been considered. The makers were initially looking at Tarakaratna. But it was said that this actor might not excite the audience. They need the villain to be in par with the actor himself.
Earlier we have seen that in ‘Son of Sathyamurthy’, director Trivikram had roped Kannada actor Upendra and it was very well received. Directors these days are getting popular actors from other industries in south to create a powerful effect.
News is doing rounds that Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi is being considered for this role. There is no confirmation from the production team about this.
Nevertheless, Vijay Sethupathi is not a new face in Tollywood. We have seen him in character roles. It would be interesting to see how he fares as a villain against Mahesh Babu in Tollywood. Surely Vijay Sethupathi an interesting choice for villain for SSMB28.
