Veteran actor Thyagarajan prefers to stay away from the limelight in Tamil, where his son Prashanth is still trying to resurrect his sagging career. But the actor in him finds satisfaction by doing an occasional character role in Malayalam.

Recently, Thyagarajan has agreed to play Nayanthara’s dad in Dileep’s Siddique directed malayalam film titled Bodyguard that has started rolling in Kottayam. It is said to be a very crucial role in the film.

Remember that Thyagarajan shares a great rapport with the Malayalam film industry as his films like New Delhi were blockbusters and critically acclaimed. His last film in Malayalam was Thilakkam, in which he played Dileep’s dad.

Bodyguard is produced by Johnny Sagarika and is slated as a big summer 2009 release. The movie, scripted by Sidique is a thriller with plenty of comedy and action.
