Samuthirakani, who not very long ago was passionately directing films, is currently busy being an actor. Popular for his character roles, the actor-director will next be seen playing a villain for the first time in upcoming Tamil film ‘Rajini Murugan’.
“Samuthirakani is playing the villain in our film. Audiences have only seen him in positive character roles. Hence, this character will come as a welcome change. It will also be quite different from the roles he’s essayed so far in his career,” the film’s director Ponram told IANS.
Samuthirakani was recently lauded for his role as actor Dhanush’s father in Tamil blockbuster ‘Vella Illa Pattathari’.
Starring Sivakarthikeyan and Keerthi Suresh in the lead, ‘Rajini Murugan’ marks the hero’s second collaboration with the director after ‘Varutha Padatha Valibar Sangam’.
