National Award-winning actor Bobby Simhaa will be seen in 10 different get-ups for his next movie titled Vallavanukkum Vallavan.
Upon the release of the movie, which also stars Sshivada, Pooja Devariya, Napoleon and Karunakaran in important roles, Bobby Simhaa will join an elite list of Tamil actors who have donned more than 9 get-ups for a movie.
But unlike Sivaji Ganesan and Kamal Haasan, who did 9 and 10 different characters in Navarathri and Dasavathaaram respectively, Bobby will be seen donning 10 different get-ups while playing the same character, much like Thala Ajith in Citizen, who was seen in 9 gets-ups.
"Bobby Simhaa and Karunakaran are thieves in the movie and they will be seen in different getups at the crime scene. These characters will appear in the film as episodes which lasts for 10-15 minutes," director Vijay Tesingu told Deccan Chronicle.
Speaking about the experience of donning so many get-ups for a movie, Bobby has said: "This is the first time I am donning so many characters. It was a different experience for me. For some characters, we needed three hours to complete the make-up.
Suresh, who helped with the make-up, has done a fantastic job. Each character has a different mindset and mood, and to imbibe them was challenging."
The script of Vallavanukkum Vallavan was rejected by producers, before the actor decided to bankroll the film himself.
"This movie was declined by a couple of producers, so I started my own production house as an emotional outburst. When I asked for help, Sri Thenandal Films agreed to co-produce the film," the Urumeen actor told the leading daily.
The team is planning to release the teaser on August 2. Said to be Napoleon's 100th film, Vallavanukkum Vallavan has its music composed by Raghu Dixit. Even as Padmesh is handling the camera, Vivek Harshan is doing the editing bit.
