Why Vijay Sethupathi turned producer?

Vijay Sethupathi's maiden production venture Orange Mittai is complete and ready for release 31 July. Directed by Biju Viswanath, the movie stars Vijay Sethupathi himself in the lead role, that of a 50-year-old man.

Ramesh Thilak, Arumugam Bala and Aashritha play key roles, while Karunakaran does a cameo. Justin Prabhakaran has scored the music.

The movie focuses on the heartwarming relationship between a young paramedic and an old heart patient, says the director.

'I have known Vijay Sethupathi before Pizza. I had a script and wanted him to play the lead. But that did not happen. Meanwhile we both were tied up in our respective commitments and could not work together. All the same we used to discuss about stories, one such story was Orange Mittai which he found quite interesting', Biju Viswanath.

Heaping laurels on Vijay Sethupathi, he says, 'He is a very good human being and selfless. He is one actor who will go out of his way to help other actors. I was also finding it difficult to get producers and that's when Vijay Sethupathi hopped on and decided to produce the film.'

On his part, Vijay Sethupathi, says, 'Orange Mittai is a bitter sweet story. It will have the sweetness about life. Most of our lives are ridden with pressures but in all these, we forget to live in the 'moment'. That's what we would be conveying in Orange Mittai.'

On playing the character of an old man, he says, 'An actor has to do varied roles. I thought I would fit the role well and hence without any second thoughts, agreed to do it'.
