As far as acting is concerned, Prakashraj is concerned only about the character he is to portray. It is immaterial to him whether the role is of a hero, villain, character role or comedy. The whole thing for him is just 'acting'!
Why else would he agree to do the role of Sundar C's father? After Thalainagaram, Sundar C is acting in Veerappu. This is the remake of an old Malayalam film Spatikam.
Mohanlal's role is being done by Sundar C. Lal's father in the film, a forceful character, is played by Tilakan. A mathematics teacher, he imposes his will so much on Lal as a young boy that he grows up into a rowdy.
Father and son are like dog and cat and how the two reconcile to each other forms the rest of the story. For Tilakan's role, many actors were considered, but none fit the role. Having seen Spatikam, Prakashraj agreed to do the role.
Gopika is Sundar C's leading lady in the film!
