Filmmaker A L Vijay is known for springing surprisesd. He had cast Amy Jackson for Madarasaptinnam and now he is bringing popular Telugu actor Jagapathy Babu to Tamil with his Thandavam.
Guess why Jagapathy Babu now? Says Vijay, 'Since most of the Tamil films are being watched here and with the good response we got for Deiva Thirumagal's Telugu version Naana, we decided to cast Jagapati Babu as the other hero and he did a great job'.
He adds, 'I approached him for this role of a cop and even before I narrated the script, he said yes.'
