Saithan, also written by Pradeep, features Vijay in dual roles. The thriller tracks the story of a man who hears preternatural voices and solves a murder mystery.
Earlier in November, in an interview with news Agency IANS, filmmaker Pradeep shared his experience of working with Vijay. Pradeep revealed that Vijay's performance in the role of a supernatural character was "stunning." This is what Pradeep had to say: "Every great story requires a great actor who can justify it. Being an actor doesn't mean merely photocopying the expressions and dialogues given in the script, rather a life has to be given to that role. In that case, I was really stunned by the performance of Vijay Antony sir in the demonic role," Pradeep said in a statement.
Vijay Antony, 41, is the star of films like India Pakistan, Pichaikkaran and Salim. Vijay, however, is better known as a music director, who has composed for movies like Mariyadhai, Ninaithale Inikkum, Sattapadi Kutram and Velayudham. Vijay Antony also has musical numbers like Ulaginil, Thappellam, Poochandi and Thumbakka to his credit.
