Ranjit P. Jayakodi, the director of Vijay Sethupathi’s recently-released film Puriyatha Puthir, has spilled the beans by stating that Vijay Sethupathi’s commitment levels were beyond comprehension as the actor starred almost nude for a particular sequence in the film.
Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Gayathrie in the lead, the film released in theatres on 01st September and did reasonably well at the box-office, though not as successful as Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Vedha which released prior to this.
Speaking to newsmen, Jayakodi said “A particular sequence demanded Vijay Sethupathi to stand in heavy rains with just a flimsy rain-coat; Vijay Sethupathi donned just 10% of his usual clothing and starred in the sequence without me telling him to do so. This shows his great levels of commitment; he has no starry airs and obeys whatever the director tells him.”
It may be noted that Vijay Sethupathi, known for taking on varied roles in each of his films, plays a transgender ‘Shilpa’ in his upcoming film titled as Super Deluxe.
