Fahadh to team up with Sivakarthikeyan


Fahadh Faasil’s brilliant performances in his flicks are paying off.

 The actor is being roped in for Thani Oruvan director Mohan Raja’s upcoming film, which will have him play a character on par with its hero Sivakarthikeyan. Fahadh informs us that he’s signed on for the movie, which will mark his Tamil debut. But it’s the filmmaker who is apparently more excited at getting a chance to work with the Maheshinte Prathikaaram actor. Mohan Raja says, “As a director, I am really happy to work with Fazil sir’s son. I am a huge fan of Fazil sir and consider him a guru. His films have taught me the basics of contemporary cinema and influenced my taste for good films.”

The director tells us that he has watched Fahadh’s movies over the years and lauds his choice of roles. “I see him as a very important artiste in South India. I have noticed the way he portrays his characters and the nuances he brings in,” he explains. On roping in Fahadh for the role, the filmmaker says, “When I scripted the character, I knew it would live up to what I had in my mind only if Fahadh played the role. The moment I contacted him, he readily and willingly accepted the offer. He also wanted to be part of my film because he was impressed with my last outing, Thani Oruvan.”
Mohan, though, says that it’s too soon to reveal anything about the character. “It’s a pivotal role and almost equal in prominence to that of the hero played by Sivakarthikeyan,” he says, adding that film will go on floors by July. Apart from Fahadh and Siva, the film will also have Nayanthara playing the female protagonist.
