Fans of actor Vijay Sethupathi can rejoice for it looks like there will be yet another film of the actor hitting the screens this year.
Yes, one of Vijay Sethupathi’s eagerly awaited films Mellisai is now likely to hit screens this November and if that happens, this will be the seventh release that Vijay Sethupathi would have had this year. Actress Gayathri plays the female lead in the film which has music by Sam CS.
One other interesting development is that Mellisai has now been rechristened as Puriyaatha Puthir.
Talking to SouthScope, director of the film, Ranjit Jeyakodi, says, “The name change has been effected purely for business purposes. The film has been bought by JSK film corporation from Rebel studios. My film is a thriller but the title is of a very soft nature. Therefore, we decided to change it to Puriyaatha Puthir. “
As Puriyaatha Puthir is already the title of a hit film, the team had to take permission for the title from Super Good Films which had produced the hit film featuring Raghuvaran in it.
Ranjit says, “When we approached Super Good Films R B Choudhary sir for permission to use the title, he had no second thoughts about it and readily gave it to us. We are now likely to release this film in November this year.”
If this film releases in November, then it will be the seventh film of Vijay Sethupathi to release this year. The other films of the actor that released this year were Sethupathi, Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum, Iraivi, Dharma Durai, Aandavan Kattalai and Rekka.
