Was Vijay Sethupathi the first choice to play the baddie in Indian 2?
 Vijay Sethupathi is one of the busiest actors in South India. He is getting offers from all the leading film industries of India. Notably, he is now sharing screen space with Vijay in his 64 movie, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, and teaming up with Aamir Khan in a film. Possibly, the actor might have faced date issues to accept Indian 2.

However, it is now believed that Vijay Sethupathi might have received the offer to play the role of a villain which was earlier offered to Ajay Devgn, who too turned down the film over date issues.

Indian 2 also has Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth and Rakul Preet Singh in key roles.
