Last week we had reported about young music director Prakash Nikki of 'Rowthiram' and 'Kalam' fame, turning as a producer of a Tamil film that will be directed by debutant Vijay Sri G. Now we have learnt that the film will have a don character and a highly interesting and the most unexpected choice of an actor has been zeroed in for the don character.
Veteran actor Charu Haasan, the elder brother of Kamal Haasan will be making a comeback in Kollywood playing the role of a don in this yet to be titled film. The eldest of Haasan brothers who is 86 now, will be seen as a local don in this film. The character is a Chennai based don and hence he will be seen in a localised role shedding off his sophisticated on-screen and off-screen image.
The octogenarian actor's character will be an important one in the film, which brings about a change in the flow of the story. He will be shooting for five to six days for the film.
The shooting has already begun. The film will have a maximum of 12 characters including the lead characters who will be newcomers. Now actor in the film will sport makeup as the film's tagline is 'No Makeup No Drugs'.
Prakash Nikki will be doing the musical score for the film apart from producing it along with Swaroop Cinema banner. Raja who has worked as the associate cameraman in the films 'Soodhu Kavvum' and 'Thegidi' is handling the cinematography of the film.
