Durai Sudhakar, who started as a hero in Thappattam, has changed tracks and is now essaying the anti-hero role in Kalavani 2. Kalavani 2 is sequel to Vimal Oviya’s 2010 sleeper hit Kalavani.

Speaking to DC, the advocate-turned-actor Durai says, “After Thappa ttam, I signed a few movies as the lead hero, but they are yet to release. However, I felt that acting as a villain is much easier than playing a hero. For some reason, playing hero was very uncomfortable. I am more comfortable when I portray negative roles and so I signed four films as the antagonist. I want to earn the name of a ‘versatile villain’, like late legends Nambiar and Raghuvaran.” Interestingly, Durai is also one who has earned the moniker ‘Public Star’ owing to his philanthropic deeds in real life.

 

Kalavani 2, though a sequel, has a story that is quite unlike its prequel. “This one is more of political satire laced with comedy.  Set in Thanjavur, the film is about the politics in the local body elections, narrated in an entertaining manner.” The actor is also part of films like Varalaxmi's Danny, a film with Ezhil and Andrea.
