Sriram Raghavan’s project Merry Christmas is expected to unite Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi together for the first time onscreen. While Katrina was said to have begun the reading sessions in June of this year, the recent update states that both the leading actors are all set to attend workshops for the film.

Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif could not be a more odd couple. One is a critically acclaimed South Indian actor, while the other is a Bollywood glam diva. There are so many degrees of seeming incompatibility. Despite this, Sriram Raghavan, the director, has it all figured out. He claims that the storyline for Merry Christmas necessitates the casting of the two actors he has picked. In terms of incompatibility, Sriram plans to put Vijay and Katrina through sessions prior to filming.
Vijay Sethupathi admits he has never met Katrina Kaif. “But that is not a problem for me. I’ve worked with so many co-stars I had never met before. And we worked fine together. The important thing is to find a common ground and work accordingly. I signed this film because I loved the script and I intend to surrender completely to the director’s vision.”
