Four years after he made his Satham Podathay starring Padmapriya in the lead, director Vasanth has bounced back into action and is directing Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal which has ‘action king’ Arjun and Cheran as the heroes. The film was recently launched in the city and the shooting has been proceeding briskly.
As the title amply states the ‘number’ of lead characters, Vasanth cast Arjun, Cheran and ‘Mirchi’ Siva as the three heroes. Siva, who had committed to star in the film initially, has now pulled out of the film for reasons best known to him. Vasanth had been hunting for a suitable newcomer to play the third hero.
Not finding anybody to his liking, Vasanth has decided to cast his son as the third hero and thereby making the film as his son’s launch-pad. Readers might recall that it was Vasanth, who has made unforgettable films like SPB-Radhika’s Keladi Kanmani, who introduced Surya the hero with the film Nerukku Ner more than 12 years ago.
As such, he would be hoping that his son also gets an ideal film in his own direction. Bhanu of Thamirabarani fame has been cast as the sole heroine as of now. Bhanu who looked rather plump in Tharmirabarani has lost oodles of weight and looks slim and trim with a ‘special’ glow on her face. She would be pairing up opposite Cheran in the film.
The last time Vasanth directed Arjun was for the film Rhythm which had Meena opposite him. The film, made with an amazing script and packed by wonderful performances from Arjun and Meena, did very well at the box-office. Arjun’s fans would obviously expect a repeat of the same this time too!
