Top commercial director Lingusamy has pulled off a major casting coup. He has roped in the hot and happening Arya and his favourite Run hero Madhavan along with leading heroine Tamannaah in his new film Vettai.

In an exclusive interview to TOI, Lingusamy said, "Vettai will be an action-packed family entertainer and a multi-starrer that will have all commercial ingredients that one would associate with a Lingusamy film. There will be something different in the story presentation and packaging. As of now, Maddy is yet to sign the film. Talks are in an advanced stage and, I hope he does the film."

Arya, fresh from the success of Boss Engira Baskaran, confirmed the news saying, "Yes, Vettai is my next film. It is an honour to work with Lingusamy, who I believe understands the pulse of the mass audiences."

Lingusamy said that the film, which was originally planned with Silambarasan as the hero, is set in a small town (most likely Thoothukudi) in south Tamil Nadu. Arya and Madhavan will be playing brothers in the film, which will have enough twists and turns as Maddy plays a cop. Says Lingusamy, "Comedy will be woven in to the plot and there won't be a separate comedy track."

Lingusamy will have his regular team working with him on this flick. He and music director Yuvan Shankar Raja, along with Na Muthukumar, will soon leave for exotic foreign locations to make plans for the five songs in the film. Added Lingusamy, "Vettai will be made on a big budget by producers Dhayanidhi Alagiri and Vivek Ratnavel. The shoot of the film will start in the first week of December and will be complete by mid March. We are planning to release the film as the big summer release in May 2011."
