I was blown away by Fahadh’s performance: Thiagarajan Kumararaja
Fahadh Faasil is getting appreciation from all corners for his marvelous performance in Dileesh Pothan’s Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. His next release this year will be his Tamil debut film Velaikaaran, directed by Mohan Raja. Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara are playing the lead roles and Fahadh will be seen as the antagonist.
He has also committed for another Tamil movie with Thiagarajan Kumararaja, who won the National award for his debut movie Aaranya Kaandam. It is an anthology of five different short films. Vijay Sethupathy is playing the lead role in one while another features actress Nadia Moidu in the central character. Fahadh Faasil and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are playing the protagonists in another segment.
Thiagarajan Kumararaja is all praise for Fahadh. In a recent interview, he revealed how he was mighty impressed by Fahadh’s performance. He is quoted saying, “I was completely blown away because I didn’t expect him to be so well-prepared. I believe he has the potential to make it big in Tamil too.”
The makers have remained tight lipped about the project though shooting spot stills revealed Vijay Sethupathy in a woman’s look. Fahadh’s is an urban character. He has not undergone any major makeover for the film. The makers are also trying to get Fahadh to dub for his portions in Tamil.
Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s debut movie Aaranya Kaandam enjoys a cult status and is considered as one of Indian cinema’s finest movies in recent years. Expectations are soaring high considering an acclaimed director calling the shots for one of the most talented actors currently in South India.
