Video of Thalapathy Vijay's son Jason Sanjay directing a short film has gone viral on the internet, rigidly adhering to Vijay's earlier claim that his son is more interested in directing than acting. Vijay and his wife Sangeetha have a son named Sanjay and a daughter named Divya Sasha. Both had previously made cameo appearances in the actor's films. His eldest child, Jason Sanjay, is currently tutoring for film studies programme in the United States.
Actor Vijay is riding high on the success of his Telugu debut film, Varisu, co-written and directed by Vamshi Paidipally, and is about to embark on his second collaboration with Lokesh Kanagaraj, the updates of which are expected to be announced very soon. Vijay is notoriously reserved in keeping his personal family life private, and pictures of his son and daughter are rarely seen.
But the recent video of his son's video of directing a short film is the latest feed for the Netizens. In the viral video, the 22 year old talented aspirant can be seen directing a short film featuring his college friends as cast and crew. It is widely known that Vijay's father SA Chandrasekhar was a veteran director who first brought the Thalapathy to the big screen.
Fans of Vijay are overjoyed to hear that his grandson is following in his footsteps, and rumours are already circulating that the gifted youngster has designs on directing a film starring Vijay Sethupathi. It's pertinent to note that earlier in 2021, it was reported that Vijay Sethupathy brought the right for Tamil remake Uppenna. And there were rumours that Jason Sanjay would make his film debut in the Tamil remake of the love story.
It's worth noting that in an interview given shortly before the release of Beast, actor Vijay revealed that, when asked about Sanjay, Vijay revealed that the director of Premam, Alphonse Puthren, came to narrate a story for him. He mentioned, "I thought it was for me but he told me that it was for my son. It was a good, boy next door story. But personally, I like the story and thought it would be nice if he takes up the project. When I told him, he still said he wants more time. Only he knows if he'll be in front of camera or behind it. I'll be happy with anything he takes up,"
