“I have been getting many offers post my earlier hits. But I am careful in picking scripts as I want to be part of good films,” he says, starting a conversation with DC.
Talking about his upcoming flick Care of Kathal, he says, "It is a remake of Telugu hit Care of Kanchirapalem. I play a rugged guy named ‘Thaadi’. It is totally different from my previous films, where I was seen as a soft person. Mumtaz, who did Ritika's sister in IrudhiSuttru, plays my pair. Hemambar, a former assistant of Mani Ratnam Sir, directs the film.”
On Vanam (Forest), he says, “The movie on reincarnation is a quirky one. It’s a highly challenging role and Srikantham, who did Thappu Thanda, wields the megaphone. The climax fight which was shot in forest areas will be a talked-about one."
