Sarath Kumar's penchant to do multi-starrers seems to have reached a high, as the actor has been apparently non-stop signing interesting projects with other heroes, in which he is expected to play important roles.
The president of South Indian Film Artistes Association, who is doing a crucial character in Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiyaan', is said to be playing a meaty character in Vijay's forthcoming film 'Thupaki', directed by A R Murugadoss.
"There is an all-important character in Thupaki apart from the one Vijay is doing. When Sarath was approached for the role, he listened to the script and happily accepted the offer," say sources.
Sarath, a bankable hero by himself, has been spearheading a change in Tamil cinema. The MLA, who is the chief of All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi, is creating a trend by being part of multi-starrers like 'Pazhassi Raja', 'Kanchana', 'Mynaa' (Kannada) and 'Kochadaiyaan'.
