While fans of Vijay Sethupathi believe that the actor plays the lead role in ‘Aandavan Kattalai’ and ‘Kaaka Muttai’ director Manikandan’s third film ‘Kadaisi Vivasayi’, the filmmaker has revealed that an eighty-five-year-old farmer named Nallandi plays the lead role in the film.
Kadaisi Vivasayi is all about how an entire village forgot the old practice of worshiping ‘Kuladevata’ and farming. Manikandan says both Yogi Babu and Vijay Sethupathi are playing pivotal roles in the film but they are not the lead characters.
We hear that Vijay Sethupathi plays a mentally retarded in the film and Yogi Babu will be seen as the mahout. Produced by Manikandan himself, veteran composer Ilaiyaraaja is scoring the songs and re-recording.
The shoot of the film largely happened in Usilampati and surrounding locales.
