Rajkiran, the producer- turned- director- cum- hero has decided to restart his directorial venture Adam and Eval again this month.
Rajkiran started his filmi career as a film distributor. After 20 years of doing good business, he entered Kollywood as a producer with the film Raasaave Unnai Nambi. Being a close friend of Isaignani Ilayaraaja, he titles all his films with the prefix 'Raasa' (except Aranmanai Kili) to show his respect towards the maestro. He has defied all the definitions to become a hero in Tamil filmdom.
A big mustache, half tied dhoti showing the striped underwear, and a rough look is the identity of this actor in his films. He was the only actor other than superstar Rajinikanth,who got a salary of more than a crore in the early nineties. Ace comedian 'Vaigai Puyal' Vadivelu was introduced to filmdom by Rajkiran only. But after his debacle in Manickam and confusions in his personal life, Rajkiran has been concentrating more on acting instead of directing films.
His last directorial venture was Ellame Enn Raasathan. A few months ago, Rajkiran had launched a film titled Adam Eval under his direction. Ilayaraaja is his music director for this project too. But after a few days of shooting following the pooja, the film's shooting was stopped due to various reasons. Now he is getting ready to restart the film again with a bang.
Rajkiran told us: "Life has its share of highs and the lows. Nobody can be an exception to this law of nature. I enjoyed my days in the field when I was at my peak. Now I believe that a good phase in my life is about to begin. I would like to restart the film Adam Eval with the lilting tunes of Ilayaraaja. There will be a change in the title, and I have planned to restart the project on June 16 th...'
Welcome back Rajkiran!
