Manu Narayan who plays Shruti Haasan's pair in Sabash Naidu speaks up

Kamal’s trilingual Sabash Naidu will soon commence in the US. This film, as is known to movie buffs, features his daughter Shruti Haasan. The man who will be paired opposite Shruti in the film is Manu Narayan, an actor, film producer, singer, songwriter, composer and saxophonist based in America. He has made his Broadway debut in the Andrew Lloyd Webber/A.R. Rahman musical Bombay Dreams in 2004. He was also featured in Sudhish Kamat’s Good Night Good Morning. He tells behindwoods how he came aboard Sabash Naidu


“Ever since I was little, I can remember my parents sitting me down to watch Kamal sir's films. Loving music, I would try and learn the songs and watch the films over and over. When I was young, Moondram Pirai with Sridevi and Kamal sir was my favorite. I love that last scene where after a long chase he tries to catch his love. And of course, I love the song Kannae Kalaimanae which Kamal sir himself recorded. He has always been a hero of mine, a talent and career that I have looked up to. Undoubtedly, he is one of the most versatile/best actors in the world.


After I starred on Broadway, I had a chance to meet Kamal sir when he was filming in New York. We have kept in touch ever since. He has always been extremely generous in giving me well timed career advice for which I have always been thankful. When he called me to do this role in his newest film, I was honored and thrilled. Especially when I found out that he had entrusted me to play opposite his daughter - the incredibly talented Shruti. I quickly cleared my busy schedule here in the states to get the chance to live a lifelong dream- the chance to act in a Kamal Haasan film.


I can't tell you about my role without giving away too much. But it is a great opportunity for me. I can't wait to start shooting”.


Wish you the best Manu!
