Actor Vijay Sethupathi was last seen on screens in the action entertainer Sindhubaadh which hit the theaters under the directorial of story teller S. U. Arunkumar which had actress Anjali in the female lead role. The flick opened up to mixed reviews from the critics in the industry and managed to do a moderate business. The actor who is gearing up for the release of the mass action drama Sanga Thamizhan is currently busy shooting for his next social drama which is titled as Laabam. The venture will be helmed by the National award winning film maker S. P. Jhananathan. The project went on floors a couple of months ago with a formal pooja in Chennai. Now we have an interesting update on the social drama.
The shooting of the project is nearing its final stage. We had recently reported that the production unit has roped in Madras fame actor Kalaiyarasan to don a significant role in the flick. Now actor Kalaiyarasan has joined the team to shoot for the drama. The production unit has officially announced the news on their social media account. Taking to their official twitter handle, VSP Productions shared a picture of the actor with a welcome message on it and wrote, ‘Most welcome actor Kalai.’ The actor has joined the unit in the final stage of shoot so we will have to wait to see what role the actor essays in the venture. Though actors Vijay Sethupathi and Kalaiyarasan are good friends they are yet to share the screen space. This film will mark the first time association of both the actors. The first look poster and teaser of the movie are expected to be unveiled on social media soon.
