According to sources, Vijay Kumar was planning to make his acting debut with his next directorial venture 'Kodialbail'. But, when he was offered 'Katapaadi Kattappa', the script of the film and the role for him was too good to be refused.
Speaking to Daijiworld.com he said, "I felt this role was perfect for me. 'Katapaadi Kattappa' is a film with a political backdrop. I was offered three Kannada films earlier which I refused. As 'Katapaadi Kattappa' is a Tulu film, I agreed for it. Its time for me to show the audience my acting talent. I am confident that the audience will accept me as an actor".
