BHARATH SIGNS AN EDGE-SEATED THRILLER FOR HIS NEXT
It’s quite evident that the birth of filmmakers in Tinsel Town has been running into monstrous figures. Almost every weekend, we are witnessing the arrival of moviemakers, equipped with unique proficient skills. Here is Sharran Kumar, who is famous for couple of his short films and acting skills as well. He had his acting debut through Prakash Raj’s production ‘Inidhu Inidhu’ followed by Charles Shaffiq Karthika and Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam. Now he debuts as a filmmaker through an edge-seated thriller film that has Bharath Niwas in lead role.
“I never wanted to become an actor for filmmaking was my passion. It happened that I had been to an advertisement shooting to ask whether I could assist the director. But to my surprise, they asked me to give auditions for acting. After Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam, I felt the need to get myself straight into directorial league. Henceforth, I took nearly a year and half to complete penning the script,” says actor Sharran. It is noteworthy that Sharran had directed couple of short films among which ‘Tea or Coffee’ gained great appreciations.
Labeling his maiden debut script as a dark thriller, Sharran adds, “Bharath will be seen essaying the role of a businessman, who is squeezed into a complicated situation of saving his family from an inevitable danger. This will not be a hero-driven film, but instead will offer it emphasis on every character. Bharath was very impressed with the script and instantly gave a nod to be a part of this film.”
Gokul of Chennai to Singapore fame will be seen in a substantial role. The makers are busy in the pursuit of heroine and will be finalizing on this shortly. The technical crew consists of a much decorous team that includes Dharan (Music), Yuva (Cinematography – Jackson Durai and Burma fame), Sunny (Editor), Karky (Lyrics), Sairam Krishnan (Executive Producer) and Karundhel Rajesh (Script Consultant – Soodhu Kavvum, Netru Indru Naalai fame).
Since the script demanded the backdrops of hill station, the shoot will be held in Kodaikanal from middle of July. Lucky Chhajer is producing the film under the banner Cue Entertainment.
