At present, Ayyanar, the movie that Aadhi has worked on forever, it seems, is nearing completion and another of his movies, Kumba Mela, has completed 50 per cent of its shooting. Produced by Michael Rayappan, of Nadodigal (2009) fame, and directed by Vijaya Prakash, the story of Kumba Mela revolves around the relationship between a father and his son. Needless to say, the commercial ingredients – romance, comedy and action – will be a part of the movie as well.
Aadhi"s co-stars in the movie are Poorna (female lead), yesteryear actors, Ravichandran and K. R. Vijaya, as well as Suresh, of Panneer Pushpangal fame, in a powerful role. The unit of the movie did not want the usual grandeur that accompanies a launch, so they started shooting without announcing an official media release.
His debut film, Mirugam, may have fetched rave reviews and laurels for his performance, but it is his second film, Eeram, that catapulted him to fame. Eeram is a supernatural thriller, and it proved to be the bigger milestone in actor Aadhi"s career, leading to an onslaught of offers from Kollywood film makers.
