    Veteran actor Vivek, who will be seen playing Karthi's father in the upcoming horror film Kashmora, has said public intelligence is fast becoming a threat to movies.

    In one of his interviews to Times of India, the 54-year-old actor has spoken about his upcoming films and how various social media platforms are playing key roles in today's cinema.

    "Karthi will be seen as my son in 'Kashmora'. Though I essay an aged man's role, it is a flamboyant character, and not a serious one. The cop I portray in 'Muthuramalingam' will be a loud one. He is a person who can't keep secrets. The comic portions are based on this interesting trait of the character, he has said.

    On public intelligence, he has said, "They (movie goers) can identify copies of foreign movies. Public intelligence has become a big threat to films now. They show no mercy in tearing a film apart if they feel cheated, irrespective of how big its star cast is.

    I think audiences were always clever, but there weren't platforms such as Twitter for them to air their thoughts. Going by the memes, I feel audience has a better sense of humour than us."

    On his next release Rum, Vivek has said, "The film will have ample scope for humour in my style, though it is, basically, a spine-chilling spooker. I feel revealing anything about my role would spoil the suspense. But I can say that this project has a technically sound crew. Its director, debutant Sai Bharath, used to work on VFX in films earlier."

    Among young music directors, Anirudh is his favourite.

    "Anirudh scoring music for the film is yet another highlight. I have always been a fanatic fan of Ilaiyaraaja. However, Anirudh is my favourite in the current generation."
