Vijay Chandar shared a picture of himself with Bollywood star Aamir Khan on Twitter and had written, “Some time unexpected dreams come true love u Amir Sir (sic).” This sent netizens on a tizzy, with many even asking the filmmaker if he’s part of Sanga Tamizhan, a film that he’s directing with Vijay Sethupathiin the lead.
Curious, we tapped Vijay, who was in the thick of a schedule in Karaikudi, and he told us, “I’m a big fan of Aamir sir, and when I learnt that he’d come to Karaikudi for some work, I used that opportunity to reach out to him. It was a memorable moment for me, meeting him and talking to him, even if it was just for a few minutes.”
Meanwhile, Vijay, who last directed Sketch, is busy with the last few schedule of Sanga Tamizhan. The film has Vijay Sethupathi playing a double role for the first time ever in his career. The director had earlier told us, “I’ve met Vijay Sethupathi a few times and when I narrated the one-liner to him, he was kicked. He has done a variety of role, and he told me that he wanted to do a mass film. Avar oru mass mood la iruntharu. Even I like doing mass commercial films, and we thought this script could work for both of us.”
The film, which also stars Raashi Khanna and Nivetha Pethuraj, has music by Vivek-Mervin.
