Dhanush is riding a wave since last yearís Padikkathavan which was super hit, his hat trick at the box-office. But the actor is grounded and is busy overseeing the promotional work of his next Pongal release Kutty. In this exclusive interview to Sify.com, the young actor speaks
Are you tensed, as Kutty gets ready for a Pongal release?
I am tensed before the release of any of my films. But at the same time, I know that success is not permanent and I am prepared to take the audiences verdict. After all they are the people who make a film a hit or flop. Till today, they have been extremely supportive and a pray and hope that this time too, lady luck shines on me.
Tell us something about Kutty?
As everyone knows, this film is a remake of that blockbuster hit Arya in Telugu. It is a clean family entertainer with twist and turns that will make you laugh, cry and get entertained. I can assure you that.(Smiles). My character Kutty is one among the hundreds of guys you meet daily in colleges or on roads. He thinks differently and that make him unique. It is a campus story with love as backdrop.
What are the highlights?
The biggest highlight is Kutty the character you will see in the film. He is so lovable and adorable that you will all like him. There is subtle situational comedy, romance, a fight scene and good songs. There are no villains, violence or even a scene where the hero touches the heroine. So now you know, why I said that it is a clean film for family audiences? In fact Devi Sri Prasadís songs are going to be huge hits after the film releases.
Have you retained the songs from the original? Which is your favourite?
Three songs have been retained. We have added two more new numbers. Feel my love.. is my personal favourite.
They have been choreographed well. We shot one song with Meghana Naidu atop a train in picturistic locales of Orissa.
How is Shriya and the new boy?
Shriya has done a fantastic job and she looks cute. We do not have any love scenes or romantic duets. Sameer is also talented and he has an important role. Aarthy takes care of comedy and she is a scream.
