Veteran actor Sathyaraj plays Karthi’s dad in Kadai Kutty Singam, which is being directed by Pandiraj of Pasanga fame. “Sathyaraj was hesitant to play a 60-year-old in the film but after the narration, he was impressed and readily came on board”, says the Pasanga director.
In the film, Karthi plays a passionate farmer and the only male child in the family which comprises of five elder sisters. Heaping praise on Karthi’s dedication, Pandiraj says “Despite being the brother of the producer(Suriya), Karthi played his role with a great dedication. We shot scenes in remote village locales but Karthi understood the core idea of the script and gives his 100% to the film, he is now dancing for a song with the help of a physiotherapist”.
Sayyeshaa’s name in the film is Kannukiniyaal and director Pandiraj says that the Vanamagan girl has added so much life to the character. “I was skeptical whether Sayyeshaa would suit for the village girl role but she excelled with her performance”, says the director.
The film also has Priya Bhavani Shankar and Ardhana playing the other two heroines.
