Director Majid Abu, whose film Pudhusa Naan Porandhen(PNP), which releases in cinemas this Friday
(July 8), has said his film is late actor Kalabhavan
Mani's last in Tamil.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle about the actor's awe-inspiring
commitment, he has said:
"Mani sir's portions were shot in Kodaikanal. While shooting for
a crucial sequence where Mani sir was to come out of a water tank
and fight the baddies, he was suffering from high fever. I wanted
the shoot to be called off and rescheduled. For his stature, he
could have easily taken a break.
However, being the dedicated actor that he was, he did not want
to put the unit in trouble and completed the day's shoot. We were
touched by his gesture. This was his last acting role in Tamil. It
is painful that he is no more when 'PNP' is hitting the cinema
halls on July 8th."
