For the second time in a row, Tamil actor Jayam Ravi will play a dual role in upcoming Tamil-Telugu action-thriller Nimirnthu Nil. Ravi played a double role in recently released Tamil thriller Aadhi Bhagavan. Nimirnthu Nil is produced by KS Sreenivasan under the banner Vasan Visual Ventures.
"Ravi will be essaying two important roles in Nimirnthu Nil. While one of them is a software engineer, the other character is of a 45-year old," said a statement from the production house. "It's not only about the conflict between the two characters, but how society plays an important part in drawing them together," added the statement.
The film is simultaneously being made in Telugu as Janda Pai Kapiraju featuring Nani. Samuthirakani is wielding the megaphone for both the versions of the film. Amala Paul and Meghna Raj play important roles in both versions of the film. Nimirnthu Nil also features Sarath Kumar, Badava Gopi, Subbu Panchu and Parvathy Nair. It has music by GV Prakash Kumar.
