Actress Shraddha Srinath says the women in the upcoming Tamil action-thriller "Vikram Vedha", which stars R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi, have a strong purpose and have not been merely cast to play heroines.
The film also stars Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar in a crucial role.
"The women in the film have a very strong purpose. They have meaty roles and they are not there just to play love interests," Shraddha, who is paired with Madhavan, told IANS.
Directed by Pushkar-Gayatri, the film is gearing up for July 7 release.
On working with Madhavan, Shraddha said: "I'm a huge fan of Maddy. By the end of the shoot, I became a bigger fan. Thanks to the experience, my respect for him has also grown immensely. He brings out the best in his co-star."
In the film, Madhavan plays an encounter specialist while Vijay will be seen as a gangster.
Although Shraddha doesn't have many scenes with Vijay, she said he is the kind of actor "who helps his co-actors to shine along with him".
Set in North Chennai, the film is produced by Sashikanth for YNot Studios. It also stars Kathir.
