According to media reports, Vijay Sethupathi and Abhishek Bachchan are reportedly in talks with Gautam Vasudev Menon for an action-drama.

Larger-than-life film

Vijay Sethupathi and Abhishek Bachchan are two of the big names in the Indian film industry. The two actors who come from different paths (Tamil and Hindi industries) have proved their acting skills in their respective areas. And it will be delightful to witness them sharing the screen space. Now, as per a new report, Vijay Sethupathi and Abhishek Bachchan are in talks for a larger-than-life film. The movie will be helmed by Gautham Vasudev Menon.


According to Pinkvilla, the story reportedly revolves around two main protagonists, and Gautham has reached out to Vijay and Abhishek to play the main leads. Both the actors liked the subject, which will be on a large scale. Gautham has formed an interesting world for this film, wherein Vijay and Abhishek will play two very larger-than-life characters.

“Once the final script is locked, they will take the conversation forward. The contracts are yet to be signed,” said a source close to the development.

Gautham Vasudev Menon

Gautham Vasudev Menon is one of the most celebrated filmmakers in India, having directed many highly appreciated projects. His last directorial outing, 2022’s Tamil gangster film – Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu Part I: The Kindling, was also critically acclaimed and did well at the box office too.


Interestingly, Gautham will also be seen with Vijay Sethupathi in Vetrimaaran’s Tamil period crime-thriller, ‘Viduthalai’ as an actor. Abhishek Bachchan and Gautham Vasudev Menon too have known each for a long time. In 2022, the actor had taken to Twitter to express his excitement for Menon’s Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu. Sharing the film’s Hindi trailer, he had written, “So many friends and people I admire in this. Can’t wait to see it. All the best guys.”
