Veteran singer Mano convened a press meet to formally introduce his son Tahir, who debuted in Selva’s recently released Naanga. Shakir played a villain’s role in Naanga that was released last week. Mano started off with thanking the Tamil film industry for making him a singer of repute. “The faith maestro Ilayaraja had in me is what lifted me to this level,” he mentioned.
Shakir has been introduced to Rajini and Kamal to seek their blessings, thanks to his father’s connections. He mentioned that Rajini advised him to excel in villain roles that will pave way for more challenging opportunities. So will Mano produce a film for his son? “No such plans as of now, but if need arises, I will definitely produce a film,” Mano said.
