This year belongs to Vijay Sethupathi. Following the success of Kavan and Vikram Vedha, the actor is gearing up for the release of highly anticipated Karuppan, in which he plays a bull tamer. With interesting line up of projects including Mani Ratnam’s next yet-untitled film, Vijay stunned audiences with his look from Aaranya Kaandam fame Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s next film Super Deluxe, which was earlier titled Aneethi Kathaigal. Tipped to be an anthology, the film features Vijay in the role of a transgender and his look was released on Tuesday evening by the film’s director.

In a tweet, Kumararaja introduced Vijay’s character as Shilpa and he is seen wearing a red sari and sporting shades. The film has well-known directors such as Mysskin, Nalan Kumarasamy and Neelan Shankar as co-writers. It’s the first time in Kollywood that four directors have joined hands for a project and it’ll be really interesting to see what will come out of this collaboration. The film also stars Samantha, Fahadh Faasil, Nadiya and Gayathri. Mysskin will also be seen playing a pivotal role.

The film has been on the floors for a while now. It’s yet unknown whether the entire shooting has been wrapped up. If everything goes as planned, the film might hit the screens in December this year. Yuvan Shankar Raja has been roped in compose the music while PS Vinod and Nirav Shah are cranking the camera.
