Dhuniya fame Vijay is playing the title role in Putta produced by Pyramid Saimira. Vijay plays a middle class auto driver in this film directed by reputed N.Omprakash Rao. Music is by Hamsalekha.
Swaminathan, Managing Director, Pyramid Saimira believes that the strength of the hero is the main driving force. He also added that it is the hero who takes the risk these days while addressing the media.
Vijay lighting beedi and cigarette in the film came up for discussion and on the insistence of media persons director N.Omprakash agreed not to show actor Vijay smoking in the film. For this Vijay answered silently that it is only after taking a fag he will be able to act in the film.
However Vijay is of the firm opinion that 'Putta' is going to give a new image for him. He has put on weight increasing his muscles for this auto driver role. He has also accepted 'Slum Bala' under the direction of journalist Sumana Kittur and another film after this for Rockline Productions.
