Karan, who is known for his best roles in films like Kokki and Kannedhirey Thondrinal is back again with an action comedy thriller, Uchathula Shiva, directed by Jaypee. Produced by his wife Devi Karan, this film has Neha Ratnakaran as the heroine, while Vidyasagar composes the music.
Opening up on his films, an elated Karan said, “My previous films are either high on emotion or action. I wanted to do a light-hearted entertainer because of which I chose this movie. I play Shiva, who doesn’t take life seriously and would joke in tough situations. He gets entangled in a situation, and how he comes out it forms the story.”
Karan admits that the stunt sequences in the movie were risky, as choreographer Kanal Kannan insisted on performing the stunts sans body double. — “In fact, there is a sequence involving fire, which was very taxing. One of the interesting facts is that the fight sequence will have humour as well!”
The actor was a menacing villain before he turned hero. When asked if he misses doing villainous and character roles, he stated, “When I played villainous or character roles, I had limitations and I was not able to perform the way I want to. But, as a hero, I have the freedom to carry the entire film and do things my way.”
The team of Uchathula Shiva is planning to release the film in September. Karan opines that the music, sound, and effects play a vital role in engaging the audience....
