      Ramana:A hero from the 'directors league'

      By By: Settu Shankar

      Ramana is a popular director who has churned out action packed films like Thirumalai, Sullan and Aadhi.

      After working as an assistant to director Ramana in all these films, Rajasegar has planned to take the plunge into direction. But he was unable to find a hero for his script. His guru was determined to help him and now he plays the lead role in the film, which is titled Gudhirai!

      The film does not have a natural storyline but is more like a character analysis. "It looks at the lead character - Surya - from three different angles," quips the debutant director, "We have shot a 3 minute15 seconds scene that involved the hero showcasing various emotions in a single take!"

      "He was assisting me when I did my commercial films," says Ramana, "But I never knew that he had such a different attitude towards film making."

      How was it to be directed by an assistant? "There were some scenes when I wanted to suggest a few things but I constantly reminded myself that I was only acting in this film," he replied.

      Most of the shoot for the film is over and all that's left is a song that will be shot in Rajasthan soon. The rest of the cast includes Prakashraj, Vineeth, Ilavarasu and Lalitha.
