Carefully carving a place for him in Tamil cinema is Dhanush. With all his recent ventures becoming decent hits, the son-in-law of the Superstar is now expecting the release of ‘Kutty’, which would hit theatres on Pongal.
A remake of Telugu blockbuster ‘Arya’, which had Allu Arjun in the lead, ‘Kutty’ is directed by Mithran Jawahar. The filmmaker had earlier made ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’ and is currently busy with the Tamil version of Tollywood hit ‘Ready’, all starring Dhanush.
Produced by Gemini Film Circuit, ‘Kutty’ has Shriya Saran opposite Dhanush. Musical score is by Devi Sri Prasad, the hot and happening music composer of Telugu cinema. All his songs have come out well, say sources in the know.
Says Dhaunsh, “I usually do not like doing remakes. But somehow, after seeing ‘Arya’, I feel like giving it a shot. ‘Kutty’ is a breezy, romantic campus caper. I am extremely satisfied after seeing the rushes.”
On his heroine Shriya, the actor says, “She is very good in the film. She is a talented actress and it was visible on the sets of ‘Kutty’. Besides, Shriya’s knowledge and her penchat to know new things is something that really amazed me.”
Claiming that the movie will be liked by one and all, director Mithran Jawahar says, “Arya was well received by Telugu audience. We have immense hope that ‘Kutty’ too will get a similar reception here. The script is so strong and it will woo the audience.”
Denying that he has no intention to do remakes alone, the filmmaker says, “I thought of doing a movie based on my original story. But I changed my mind after watching ‘Arya’. Such was its impact on me.”
Happy about acting with the Superstar in ‘Sivaji’ and his son-in-law in ‘Kutty’, Shriya says, “Dhanush is as simple as Rajini sir. We became good friends while working together for ‘Kutty’. Not just Dhanush, but his entire family is close to me.”
On the movie, she says, “I play a college student. My role has got enough scope to perform and I believe that I had given my best. Director Mithran Jawahar knows how to extract work from his team members.”
