Role of a lifetime

Acting in the Vasanthabalan-directed Aravaan has been an experience of a lifetime for Aadhi. Playing a de-glam role in a rustic setting has allowed a serious actor like Aadhi to explore his potential and prove his talent. Aravaan is a few weeks old at the theatres and despite the mixed reviews, Aadhi is quite happy that his producer and distributors are contented. “I have received good feedback on my performance-oriented role and, as with most Vasanthabalan films, the response will only grow more positive with time. I am now excited about my role in director Kumar's Maranthein Mannithein (tentative title) which is based on the 1986 Godavari floods. I am paired with Taapsi and Lakshmi Manchu (also its producer). The story has a mix of emotions — love, lust, anxiety and disillusionment,” says Aadhi who plays the role of a fisherman in a village that was catastrophically affected by the floods. “Yet another great opportunity came my way when I was signed on for Kochadaiyan . It is a crucial role for me and I am excited about the interactions I will have with Rajinikanth, Jackie Shroff and Deepika Padukone.”
