Appani Sarath Kumar about getting to work with Mani Ratnam in Chekka Chivantha Vaanam!
We had recently reported about ‘Angamaly Diaries’ fame Sarath Kumar bagging a role in Mani Ratnam’s upcoming movie Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (CCV). This is his second Tamil film after Sandakozhi 2 and the actor is all excited about it. In a recent interview to TOI, Sarath opened up on how he landed a role in Mani Ratnam’s movie.
Apparently, the legendary filmmaker had watched Sarath’s performance in Angamaly Diaries and was mighty impressed by it. Sarath was called upon for a screen test and that’s how he bagged the role. He didn’t reveal more details about his role expect for the fact that it’s a very serious one which offers him good scope for performance.
Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has already gone on floors and Sarath will be joining the team by the second week of March. The movie has a huge star cast with lead roles played by Arvind Swamy, Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Arun Vijay, Aditi Rao Hydari, Jyothika and Aishwarya Rajesh.
