From playing chocolate boy roles to macho characters, Jayam Ravi has transformed into an actor of substance over the years. His action scenes in Peraanmai were well-appreciated. N. Kalyanakrishnan, Peraanmai director S. P. Jhananathan’s associate, has cast Ravi in Aascar Films’ Bhooloham , as a boxer. Set in North Chennai where the ‘boxing’ tradition is said to be alive and kicking, the film is the result of considerable research done by Kalyanakrishnan. Paired with Ravi is the talented Trisha in a totally different role. A highlight of Bhooloham will be the action sequence involving Ravi and Hollywood actor Nathan Jones.
