Vijay to fight with Tota Roy in AR Murugadoss film

Bengali actor Tota Roy Choudhury has not just landed himself the antagonist’s role in director AR Murugadoss’ upcoming Tamil film, he also secretly shot with the unit in Kolkata recently. The film has Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Samantha in the lead.

A source from the unit told us, “We shot a major chase sequence in the bylanes of Kolkata for four consecutive days starting last Monday. The shooting is being held from midnight to 4 am.”

When we got in touch with Tota, he confirmed the news, stating “Working with the Ghajini maker is an experience in itself. Not only is ARM sir brilliant at his job, he is also extremely humble. He would always answer my queries with a smile.”

In the film, Tota plays an international gangster — Vivek Banerjee. To track him down, cops take the help of a criminal mastermind (Vijay). After a cat-and-mouse chase in Kolkata’s dark, dingy gulleys, Vivek is grievously injured and put behind bars. He swears revenge against Vijay, but when he meets him next, Vivek realizes that the man is the dummy of the original.

“Vivek is known to break jails easily. For the jail sequence, we will go to Rajahmundry on February 21. Then we will head to Hyderabad. Though the title of the film is yet to be decided, Vijay’s fans have named it Vijay 57, as it happens to be the 57th film of the actor,” said Tota.

So, how did he land the role? “Since Vivek is a Bengali, they wanted an actor who could speak fluently in the language. Though initially there were talks of taking the actor from Mumbai, they changed their mind,” said Tota.
