Aayirathil Iruvar has been in the making for a long time, and is now finally up for release. Director Saran, who has been in a long hiatus, says that the delay of the film’s release is due to production issues,

“All the producers in the industry are going through a rough patch right now. Making a film is not as easy as it used to be. After the satellite market crash, it has become harder for the makers. Especially, the moderate-budget movies suffer a lot more than the low and high budget films.”

Briefing us about the film, he says, “The film deals with hawala and black money transportation. The story will be told with a pinch of humour.” Vinay plays a dual role in the film and it is set in Tirunelveli.

The film also marks his second association with actor Vinay. “He gives me the opportunity to mould him for my story. That’s why I am comfortable with him. I got the same space from Ajith and Kamal sir earlier. Also, he has a good knowledge of cinema and involves himself in the film even if he has nothing to do with the particular scene. That gives a good working experience.”

Ayirathil Iruvar has three female leads, and everyone is a new face in K’town — “About 400 actresses auditioned and we couldn’t find our female lead, but when I was about to wrap it up and leave the process for later, Samuthrika showed up. She was the one we were looking for. For a ‘Bond girl’ type of character, who handles hawala money transactions, I found Kesha Kambati as the ideal choice. Swastika, who has done a few films in other industries, has also performed terrifically.”

Saran’s male protagonists are known for their grey shades, but in this film, all the female leads will have a touch of negativity, according to the director, who feels people nowadays, like characters with negative shades. When asked about the release date, Saran affirms, “The film will be out mostly on February 24, or latest before the second week of March.”
