Directed by U R Jameel who has previously worked as the assistant director in ‘Romeo Juliet’ and ‘Bogan’ with the bankrolling of Mathiyalagan’s ‘Etcetera Entertainment’, it was earlier announced that Hansika Motwani has been hooked up for a suspense thriller, ‘Maha’.
However, there had been many controversies arising once it was announced that Hansika and STR are playing important roles in the film, there is an official announcement that ‘Maha’ seems to have STR playing the character of a pilot.
Announcing this, Director U R Jameel had stated that “There have been lots of buzzes citing that STR will be seen in a cameo appearance, which is untrue. The fact is that he has a screen time of nearly 45 minutes and will be seen in the flashback portions. He will be essaying the role of a pilot and his role is based on the real-life incidents that happened to a pilot in Goa before 30 years. We have fine-tuned the role with some fictional touch and his portions will be more gripping.”
Further, clarifying the character name of STR in the film as ‘Jameel’, he had added on by telling that “Please don’t take it this way that I wanted to publicize my name. Initially, we had the name Shoib finalized. However, our team felt that it’s a common name and we finally zeroed in this name.
With the stunts choreographed by Dilip Subbarayan for this crime thriller, Madhan Karky, and Thamarai are roped in for penning the lyrics of the audio songs, Ghibran is playing his strings.
