A weekly round-up of Tamil filmdom
After playing the second lead in Aascar Films’ forthcoming Leelai, Suhasini Raju is out to do main roles in future. As a professional Bharatanatyam dancer, drop-dead gorgeous Suhasini will no doubt be comfortable dancing and romancing. “I am not averse to doing films under new directors if the script and characterisation are good. Leelai is by a new director and I am amazed at the way the film has shaped up. I am looking forward to its release. Meanwhile, I am scouting for good projects in Tamil,” says Suhasini, a first generation actor. With the time ripe for new faces and fresh talent, Kollywood is bound to see the likes of Suhasini in future productions.
Vishal undergoes an image makeover from action to romantic hero. To impress his fans, Vishal is doing it thrice over in Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai where he will be seen serenading three heroines. Neetu Chandra is one of them. Vishal hopes to gain lost ground with his new romantic escapades.
Following its earlier production Thambikku Intha Ooru, V K Media has just launched its second film Thiruttani with Bharath and Sunaina in the lead. Raj Kiran plays an important role. While director Perarasu has taken care of the story, screenplay, lyrics and direction in his earlier films, he’s taking on the added responsibility of scoring the music for Thiruttani. Says Perarasu, “There will be a lot of western elements in the music. To add variety, there will be a koothu number among the five songs. Thiruttani is a city-based subject with family sentiment and all the ingredients to make it a success,” Multitasking comes easy to Perarasu, it seems.
