Star hero Vijay Sethupathi is pushing the boundaries slowly and not limiting himself only to the Tamil film industry. Already, he made his entry into Telugu films last year with Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. He also acted as the villain in the upcoming film Uppena. Starring Panja Vaishnav Tej in the lead role, this film will hit the screens on April 2. Meanwhile, Sethupathi is making his Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan's upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha. Apparently, the actor is on a mission to lose 25 kilos for this film.
Vijay Sethupathi is playing the role of a soldier in this film. He will have a few key sequences with Aamir which are the crux of the film. To appear fit as a soldier, Vijay is shedding about 25 kilos for this role. We hear that the actor is working out and following a diet regime to attain the desired physique. Even Aamir is losing about 20 kilos for this character. It looks like the film's key cast is working very hard to transform themselves into roles so that it looks natural. Let us hope that they get everything perfect for the film.
Directed by Advaith Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha features Kareena Kapoor Khan as the female lead. It is an official adaptation of 1994 Hollywood film Forrest Gump. The film will hit the screens during Christmas this year. Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi is also acting in a bunch of Tamil films like Laabam, Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal and Kae Pae Ranasingam.
