Now, another film of the actor — though he doesn’t play a starring role in it — is looking at a theatrical release in September. If buzz on social media is to be believed, Kadaisi Vivasayi, the rural drama directed by M Manikandan (of Kaaka Muttai fame), in which the actor appears in an extended cameo, will release in theatres next month.

Kadaisi Vivasayi is about an elderly farmer, for whom there is no lifestyle beyond farming. “The plot revolves around a village that is organising a festival for its deity. They need some rice that was grown in the village to offer to the deity, but realise no one is into farming there. So, they end up at the doors of a small farmer, the lone farmer in the village. What happens after that is what the film is all about,” director Manikandan had told us in an earlier interview. Nallandi, a debutant with no background in acting, will be playing the central role of the farmer while Vijay Sethupathi will appear as a character called Ramaiah, a Muruga bhaktan. The film also has Yogi Babu is a key role.
