Ranjitha, the yesteryear heroine who was introduced by director Bharathiraja in Nadodi Thendral, is to play the role of Vijay's mother in the Prabhu Deva directed movie Villu.
Ranjitha, who made her debut in the early nineties (the same time when Vijay also started his career) has played heroine in many successful films including Sathyaraj's Amaithipadai.
After entering wedlock the actress switched over to small screens and acted in some serials including the successful one Roja. Now she is back to the big silver screen with a senior lady role.
In Villu, Vijay plays dual roles and Nayantara plays his lady love. The film is scheduled for Pongal 2009.
