Actor Vishal, who has been shooting for director Bala’s ‘Avan Ivan’ along with Aarya and Janani Ayyar, is said to be doing what no other Tamil film here has ever dared or ventured out to do: Vishal plays a transgender in the film, sources close to the director say and add that the director has kept it as a ‘secret’ so as not to attract media attention.
Bala, the national award-winning director for his film ‘Naan Kadavul’, has been making ‘Avan Ivan’ for the past four months. Like he usually does, the script and the story are kept as ‘top secret’ and the crew members are not opening their mouths about Vishal’s role in the film. None of the details about the film has so far been divulged to the media.
Suriya, who owes to Bala a lot for his rise to stardom in Tamil films, plays a ‘guest’ role in the film, it is reliably learnt. Meanwhile, it is also said that Vishal is playing the role of a transgender and gets lot instructions from the director besides getting appropriate make-up for his role. Vishal is said to be personally training a lot for this role.
Janani, who debuted in Kamal’s ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’ last year, is playing an equally important role in the film, which has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
The audience can sure expect a lot from the dream combination of Bala, Vishal and Aarya!
