Actor Srikanth’s Nanban brought him all glory. The remake of 3 Idiots directed by Shankar worked wonders. Srikanth reprised the role enacted by Madhavan in the original, winnig critical acclaims. Now a fresh and fit-looking Srikanth is thrilled with his next Paagan, directed by debutant Mohammad Aslam, hitting the screens today.
He says, ‘Paagan means a mahout. Every mahout will show boundless love towards his elephant. So is my character. But here he loves and cares for his bicycle, which plays an important part in his life. It is a novel theme. We have conveyed a strong message through the film that everyone should strive hard to come up in life and there is no place for short-cuts. Thanks to Vendhar Movies, who are releasing the movie in a big way, Paagan is being screened in maximum screens.’
