Nakul made his acting debut in Shankar directorial Boys a
decade ago. Since then, he has been part of quite a few films. Now,
he is gearing up for Arivazhagan Venkatachalam directorial
Vallinam, which is made by one of the
top producers in Kollywood.
"Nakul is the most energetic actor both on and off screen. It is
this very quality of him that prompted me to cast him in my film
Vallinam. Most importantly, the character he essays in the
film requires him to be energetic as well," Venkatachalam told
He plays a basketball player in the film, which as the director
puts it, is a sports-drama set against a college backdrop. "It's a
challenging role for which he underwent months of training. The
sport in the film is used to intertwine and narrate different
contextual references such as friendship, romance and social
awareness," he added.
The film also stars Mrudhula Basker, Atul Kulkarni, Siddharth
Jonnalagadda, Amzath Khan, Jagan and Anupama Kumar. Shot
predominantly in Madurai and Coimbatore, Vallinam is getting ready
for release in April. It is produced by Aascar

cinematography by Bhaskar.
