There was once a time, when every new film necessarily had to have the hero playing the good cop, literally. In accordance with history repeating itself, seems like the trend is coming back to Kollywood now, with top heroes of the industry playing the police role in their movies. After director Hari's 'Singam 2', where Suriya acted in khaki, we now hear that Thala Ajith and Ilayathalapathy Vijay are also playing cop roles in their upcoming films. Though the respective movie units remained tight lipped about the news, sources close to the actors spilled the beans recently.
After his role in khaki in 'Mankaatha', Ajith is playing the role of a cop in Vishnuvardhan's next too; according to the source, he will be seen donning the police hat only off and on, to bridge the story. Vijay will be acting in khaki in director Nesan's 'Jilla'; a setting of felicitation show, involving a lot of junior artistes in police uniform, was shot recently in the city, and Vijay joined the crowd for his role, on the last couple of days.
