The actor seems to have undergone a makeover for the role, with a different haircut and costumes, a look he has tried to keep under wraps. At a recent event, he was seen sporting a cap to cover his new haircut for the film.
Apart from heroine Sunaina, the cast includes an impressive list of veteran actors Nandita Das, Thambi Ramaiah, Saranya and Samuthirakani amongst others and the actor seems to be having a good time interacting with the veterans on the sets.
Says he, ‘They are all very down to earth and help me a lot during the shoot with suggestions and encouragement. Post the shoot, they interact with all of us like friends. Thambi Ramaiah is very spontaneous and keeps us in splits.
Nandita and Saranya are very down to earth. Samudrakani is very friendly and I have learnt a lot from all of them. It’s a delight to be around them and I am looking forward to the next schedule this month which will be in Rameswaram.”
The team shot in Manapaadu, in the Tuticorin area. Whats driving the unit crazy however is the excessive heat and the fine beach sand that sticks to the body when the winds blow.
“Even the locals say that they don’t venture out in the afternoon heat and are amazed that we work during that time on the beach!” grins Vishnu who has got completely tanned for the look of a fisherman.
The film’s look is out and it seems to be a period movie.
