Tamil star hero Vijay Sethupathi already made his Telugu debut with Megastar Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Vijay Setupathi played a pivotal role in the film. Meanwhile, he has also signed another film called Uppena which stars Sai Dharam Tej's younger brother Panja Vaishnav Tej as the lead.
Vijay is donning the role of an antagonist in this movie. Apparently, the actor charged a whopping amount of Rs. 5 crores as remuneration for this movie. Even the makers have agreed to pay the quoted amount as they felt that only Vijay will be apt for that villain character.
Apart from this, Vijay will also essay the antagonist in Allu Arjun
's next film with Sukumar. The buzz is that the producers are paying more than what he is getting for Vaishnav Tej's movie.
Since both the films come under Mythri Movie Makers production, the producers sealed a combo deal with him that is working for both the parties.
Directed by Buchi Babu Sana, Uppena stars debutant Krithi Shetty. It is being bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers.
Directed by Sukumar, the untitled Allu Arjun's film has Rashmika Mandanna
for the heroine character.
