Velaikkaran is nothing like my previous films, it’s a very serious film with a lot of emotions: Sivakarthikeyan
The much awaited Sivakarthikeyan-Fahadh Faasil starrer Velaikkaran is finally releasing this Friday. Written and directed by Mohan Raja, the movie has its music by Anirudh Ravichander and is produced by RD Raja of 24 AM Studios. Expectations are high among the audience for Velaikkaran thanks to its stellar star cast, the highly impressive promos and the fact that the director’s last film Thani Oruvan was a widely acclaimed one.
Sivakarthikeyan has pinned high hopes on the film. Trade experts believe that Velaikkaran will be a game changer in his career. With his lovable guy-next-door image, the actor has mostly done roles which offer him scope for humour. But, Velaikkaran is in total contrast as it follows a very serious mood and speaks about a very relevant social issue.
In a recent interview, Sivakarthikeyan opened about more about the movie. He said, “Usually, my characters become serious only towards the climax. Velaikkaran is different. It’s an emotional journey of Arivu and his struggles. I’m not the hero of the film; the content is. Right after Remo, I wanted to do a film that would be in contrast and I’m glad I got Velaikkaran. The film has given me confidence that good content can bring out more nuanced performances from me. No other film I’ve done has had me emote so much.”
Along with Sivakarthikeyan, Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil also plays a very prominent role in the movie. Nayanthara, Sneha, Prakash Raj, Rohini, RJ Balaji and many others are also part of the supporting cast. All eyes on December 22 for the movie’s release.
