Marconi Mathai is an upcoming Malayalam film that will release on 11th July 2019. Tamil Superstar Vijay Sethupathi will play himself as an extended cameo in the film. This is his debut film in the Malayalam cinema.
Vijay Sethupathi told to Cinemaexpresson why he chose this film for his step into Malayalam cinema, “No matter how many youngsters come and go, your first lessons always come from your seniors. They deserve our respect and time, even if there is a date issue. I have seen some of Jayaram sir’s films and, naturally, I wanted to meet him in person.”
In the heart-warming teaser, the focus seems to be on the radio. Vijay Sethupati is seen attending the Radio show and speaking to his fans, including Jayaram. Marconi in the title of the film stands for its inventor Guglielmo Marconi.
Vijay Sethupathi was last seen in Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s hyperlinked noir film – Super Deluxe. He will be seen this week in a Tamil action film – Sindhubaadh.
