Vikram Prabhu will soon be seen playing a 45-year-old encounter specialist called Birla Bose in his upcoming film Thuppakki Munai.
The actor, who has largely refrained from experimenting with his looks until now, will sport a brand new grey-haired avatar in the flick. “I chose to do the film because the story and my character were new, something I haven’t attempted so far,” says Vikram.
The film, directed by Dinesh Selvaraj, a former assistant of Mani Ratnam, aims to shed light on policemen’s untiring service to society. “What Birla Bose loses and gains in his life as an upright cop forms the crux of the story. Vikram has delivered a wonderful performance in this film that touches upon a social issue,” Dinesh says.
The movie has been shot extensively in Rameswaram, Dhanushkodi and surrounding islands, as well as Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Madurai. It has Hansika paired with Vikram for the first time, and it also features Vela Ramamurthy, Aadukalam Naren, MS Bhaskar, and Bharat Reddy in its supporting cast.
Rasamathi has handled the cinematography, and LV Muthuganesh has scored the music. The background score of the film produced by V Creations has been created entirely in Macedonia, Greece....
