Director Mysskin who played the villain in Ram starrer Savarakathi is donning the antagonist’s hat again. This time, it would be opposite a hero that Ram introduced. Vasanth Ravi, who shot to fame with Ram’s Taramani, has now signed his second film with debutante Arun Matheswaran. Notably, Arun had earlier worked with Thiyagaraja Kumararaja and Pushkar-Gayathri.
According to media reports, Vasanth said, “I’ve known Arun for about a year. He was having this script for many years. It has gone to many stars and has finally landed with me, so I’m fortunate that way. Arun had first narrated a love story, but then he told me that I should do this script. I was hesitant because he had written it as a star film and I was unsure if it would suit me. He convinced me saying that anyone would suit this script and made me believe that I would be right for the role. It’s an action film, so different from Taramani. In fact, among the many offers that I’ve received post-Taramani, only a couple of them were action scripts. I wasn’t convinced about those, but I liked this one a lot. Mysskin sir is doing the antagonist’s role.”
