Director Mani Ratnam’s multi-starrer project Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is one of the much-anticipated movies of recent times. Starring Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Arvind Swami, Arun Vijay, Aishwarya Rajesh, and Jyothika, the movie will have music by AR Rahman.

The movie went on floors earlier this year and the shooting has been progressing at a brisk pace. Now, the latest that we hear is actor Vijay Sethupathi has joined the team. Santhosh Sivan, the cinematographer of the movie, took to his Twitter handle to share the news along with a snap of the actor from the shooting set.

“Awesome filming Vijay Sethupathi @ CCV shoot,” tweeted Santhosh Sivan. From the looks of the actor, Vijay Sethupathi is likely to play a rugged character in the movie. According to our sources, the team will shoot Vijay Sethupathi’s portions until May 6th.

In the earlier schedules, Mani Ratnam reportedly filmed scenes featuring Arvind Swami, STR, Arun Vijay and Jyothika. After last year’s Kaatru Veliyidai, Aditi Hydari is also part of Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, which she’s currently filming in Chennai.

Touted to be a socio-political drama, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam will throw light on issues like industrial Pollution and much more.
