Fahadh Faasil is an international class actor, I’m learning a lot from him: Sivakarthikeyan
The audio launch function of Sivakarthikeyan’s much awaited movie Velaikkaran was held last day in Chennai. The movie directed by Mohan Raja boasts of a stellar star cast which includes Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil, Nayanthara, Sneha and Prakash Raj among others. While speaking at yesterday’s event, Sivakarthikeyan was all praise for his co-star Fahadh, whom he considers an extraordinary actor and a dear friend.
Sivakarthikeyan is quoted saying, “Fahadh Faasil is an international class actor, and I can openly, with no fear, say this anywhere. I’m learning a lot from his acting and acting opposite him was a big boost to my performance. We have become good friends now. It will be a very special role and a special film for him.”
Velaikkaran is Fahadh’s debut movie in Tamil. He is said to be playing a grey shaded role in the movie. He appears in a full length character and the actor has dubbed for himself in Tamil. He plays Aadhi, a unique role that has several shades to it. There are different layers to the relationship between the lead characters played by Fahahdh and Sivakarthikeyan. It begins as a friendship; there is also a guru-sishya element and it also has a clash of personalities.
Fahadh Faasil has already won quite a few fans among the cine buffs outside Kerala with his performance in films like Bangalore Days, Maheshinte Prathikaram, Take Off and with his latest release Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. With Velaikaaran, he is certain to extend his popularity with the common audience of Tamil Nadu.
As per the makers, Velaikkaran is a socially relevant commercial entertainer dealing. While the director’s last release Thani Oruvan was about medical mafia, Velaikaaran will be about food adulteration and how a slum dweller fights against the corrupt system.
The movie also stars RJ Balaji, Robo Shankar, Rohini and Sathish in supporting roles. Music department is handled by young sensation Anirudh Ravichander. RD Raja’s 24 AM Studios is funding this movie which is slated to hit screens worldwide on December 22.
