Musician turned actor GV Prakash Kumar has said his upcoming romantic comedy, Trisha Illana Nayanthara, will be the boldest film this generation has ever witnessed as it has been made without any compromises.
"In every generation, there will be one film bolder than the
rest of the crop. 'Trisha Illana', in my opinion, will be the
boldest film of this generation. Since we knew it dealt with bold
content from the beginning, we didn't even mind when it was passed
with 'A' certificate," Prakash has told IANS.
The film, which is directed by Adhik Ravichandran stars GV
Prakash, Manisha Yadav and Anandi in lead roles and is all set to
release this Thursday (September 17th).
"It's strictly targeted at younger audiences, typically
college-goers. The reason we didn't mind the adult certificate is
because it's very important a film is said the way it was
originally intended to be, otherwise audiences will feel cheated.
Take the remake of 'Delhi Belly' for instance," he said.
Prakash admits that his film will open doors to bolder content
in Tamil filmdom. But he feels these movies should be made with the
target audience in mind. Trisha Illana Nayantara is about
the coming-of-age tale of a boy named Jiiva, from his school days,
and his escapades with his virginity.
"I play a jilted lover. People ask me if it's too early to play
such a character in my career, but I feel I may not get an
opportunity to experiment in the future. As you succeed and grow as
an actor, it's tough to experiment because a lot is at stake," he
Unlike his debut film Darling, where he played a
character with suicidal tendencies, he plays an energetic youngster
in this film. With Trisha Illana Nayantara, Prakash feels
he has taken his performance a notch higher.
"In 'Darling', my character had limitations in terms of
portrayal. There wasn't much I could do after a certain point.
Here, I feel I've surpassed myself with the performance," said
Prakash, who has also danced without rehearsals to a chart buster
in this film.
"'Bittu padam' song was shot in three days. I never rehearsed
for it. I learnt most of the steps on the sets from the dance
choreographer and immediately shot it," he has said before signing
