Aadhi to play an athlete

by Rinku Gupta

With string of different scripts in Tamil and Telugu, now Aadhi takes a leap into a new zone. He will be seen playing the lead role in an athletics  based film, directed by debut filmmaker Prithivi Adithya.

"As soon as I completed the script and  even while sketching the lead character, I could visualize only Aadhi sir in the lead. Obviously, the reason is his well built physique that an athlete would have. Gradually, after completing the script, I decided to give a try to narrating the script to him. It was a doubtful venture for as most of his lineups are already looking huge. Finally, getting  to work with him on this project has energized my spirits and I am looking forward to delivering a commendable work. We are now finalizing the other actors and technicians. Praveen Kumar is handling cinematographer for this film and he has already completed shooting for his debut film ‘Jiivi’, which is hitting screens in June. In addition, he has already won recognition for shooting ‘Mannin Maindhargal’, a special programme for Star Sports" says the director.

With a wide array of sports based films consistently seen on the big screens, director Prithivi assures that this one is exceptional. He adds, "This is going to be a film that delves into the world of ‘athletics’ and the challenges that the protagonist faces in accomplishing his dreams."

The team is currently holding talks with some of the top league actresses to play the female lead. Apart from cinematographer Praveen Kumar, Editor Ragul and Art Director Vairabalan have been signed up for the project. Produced by  I B Karthikeyan of Big Print Pictured and co- produced by PMM Films  and G. Manoj & G. Sri Harsha of Cuts and Glory Studios, this will be a bilingual film simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu.
