JD Chakravarthy, Ram Gopal Varma’s Sathya hero is on a roll in Kollywood. Coming out of hibernation, JD, as he is better known, has signed on the dotted line to do Vishnuvardhan’s Sarwam as the villain. Shankar saw JD’s rushes in the film and immediately signed him up to do Endhiran: The Robot, again as the villain opposite Rajnikanth.
JD Chakravarthy is thrilled to play villain in the film, because he will be getting international exposure simply by sharing screen space with the superstar.
It’s also a well known fact that the villains in Rajnikanth’s films always get decent footage, so that the superstar is able to triumph in the end and establish his “heroism”.
Both Sarvam and Endhiran: The Robot are being produced by Ayagaran films. Sources say that Rajnikanth liked JD’s earlier work and Shankar was also happy to get bulk dates from the villain!
