I’m a hard core Rajini fan

The makers of Sundarapandian met the press in the city (Chennai) yesterday, which was attended by director Prabhakaran, Sasikumar, Appukutty, Lakshmi Menon and Inigo Prabhakaran.

Prabhakaran, who had earlier worked under Sasikumar as an associate, has turned a director with this film. He said, “This film is about a rural youngster, who has a very rare quality of approaching even the toughest challenge with an optimistic mind set. I have made it into a very entertaining script with the help of my close relations. The characters in the film are the imaginations of my relatives. And I had no objection in going ahead with Sasikumar as the lead, for he has a very good fan base in the state.”

Speaking at the occasion, Sasi Kumar said, “You have always seen me as an angry youth in all my films. But in this film I appear in a very different role. I play a hard core fan of superstar Rajinikanth. My behavior in this film will be of an ardent Rajini Fan. I cannot divulge much about the film.” He also thanked Vijay Sethupathy, who has established himself as a hero in Thenmerku Paruvakaatru, for doing a part in the film.

Appukutty said, “Most people change with time. But Prabakaran hasn’t. Three years back, he showed me this script and asked me to do a part in it. The film was put on hold for long. But Prabhakaran again called me to do the role when the project started again. It was very nice of him to remember me.”

Inigo Prabhakaran and Lakshmi Menon praised Sasikumar for his simplicity and down to earth behavior. “He treats everyone equally and takes care of everyone at the sets,” said Inigo Prabhakaran.

The film is expected to release on September 14th.
