Madurey, the forthcoming flick of Madhesh projects Vijay in a totally different role. "So far in my film career of 35 films, I have not done a role like the one in Madurey. It's absolutely a new character which has given me a new experience" muses Vijay. Vijay who normally never boasts of his roles for first time opened when met on the sets of Madurey. He also added" I am not claiming that this film has a story which has never come earlier.
