Who wouldn’t want to star in a movie alongside the Superstar, Rajinikanth? Forget about supporting roles, we’d be happy to even be an extra somewhere in the back and breathe the same air as him.

Which is why we are not too surprised by a revelation by Vijay Sethupathi – who has signed on a new film that also stars Thalaivar. According to the Pizza actor, he signed on to the film without even reading the script. However, it was not so much because of Rajinikanth, but rather the good friendship he has with Karthik Subbaraj.

In an interview with radio channel Suryan FM, he said, “Thanks to the relationship I share with Karthik, I blindly signed the film.” Vijay Sethupathi also said that he is looking to learn from as much as he can from the 67-year-old legend.

Vijay Sethupathi played the leading role is Karthik Subbaraj’s directorial debut, Pizza.
