Actress Madhu Shalini is all set to play a significant role in director Bala’s upcoming venture ‘Avan Ivan’. The film stars Vishal & Aarya in the lead with Janani Iyer (of ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’ fame) playing the female lead.
Vishal is said to be playing a very ‘different’ character in the film. The film also has Suriya, who rose to superstardom thanks to Bala’s films in ‘Nanda’ and ‘Pithamagan’, playing a guest role. As a latest addition, Bala has also signed up Madhu Shalini. The Telugu actress is all set for a meaty debut in Tamil.
The film has generated quite a lot of interest in and outside Kollywood. The Unit sources, on condition of anonymity, say that the script is a ‘heavy’ one as Bala’s all scripts usually are but didn’t reveal anything more. It is also said that Vishal’s stakes in the industry might sky-rocket after the release of the film in which he plays a ‘powerful’ role.
Deviating from his preferred choice for the music of ‘Maestro’ Ilaiyaraaja, the director has chosen the musical genius’ son Yuvan Shankar Raja as the music director for the film. Yuvan is said to have done a terrific job, fulfilling the wishes and needs of Bala in letter and spirit.
The crew is presently shooting in and around Theni.
