In a recent interview, Bigil's creative producer Archana Kalpathi has revealed that the Rayappan role from the film was supposed to be played by some other senior actor as they were not sure whether the ever young Vijay would be apt to play the aged gangster.
But on seeing Sushant Singh Rajput's aged look in Chhichhore, the entire team was convinced that they can make Vijay old and showed him a rough sketch. Vijay loved it and immediately agreed to play Rayappan.
This interesting trivia on how the late actor Sushant's look inspired Tamil cinema's leading star is the talk of the town in Bollywood and now, regional media houses have also started picking up the news.
On the film front, Vijay has completed shooting for his next Master and all set to commence his next with Murugadoss post the lockdown.
