With the Thuppakki title issue still going on in court, we decided to shift our focus towards Vijay's role in this movie. Vijay's role in Thuppakki is that of a military man who returns to Mumbai, his home, and decides to do something against the atrocities that are going on in his city. He is on a mission to clear the scum from the face of Mumbai. He is not a cop as people seem to believe seeing the title.
Meanwhile, director A.R.Murugadoss wishes to start the Hindi remake of Thuppakki as soon as possible with Akshay Kumar, who he believes is the perfect choice.
