April maybe an important month for Udayanidhi Stalin and his Red Giant Productions. For not only does the month mark the release of his debut acting venture, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (OKOK), in Tamil, but it also marks the resuming of his new production by a National Award winning director.
We are talking about Neer Paravai, the film which was stalled for a few months due to the hand injury of its hero Vishnu during the CCL. But now, looks like things are better and the broken wrist has healed. If all goes well, the unit will commence shoot in Tiruchendur on April 8th. Earlier, the unit had shot for three days, when Vishnu injured his hand and couldn’t shoot anymore.
The film is the next one of director Seenu Ramasamy whose Thenmerku Paravakatrai won accolades at the National Awards.
Says a grateful and anxious Vishnu, “I met producer Udayanidhi a few days back and he enquired about my hand. I am really grateful to him and the director for waiting for me and holding up the shoot. I felt really bad that I got injured during the last match on the last day and all this resulted in an inordinate delay for the entire unit.”
The actor is feeling the heat for he says, “There is a lot riding on the film since it’s a coming together of a leading production house like Red Giants and a National Award winning director. So expectations are naturally going to be very high!”
The latest addition to the crew is Sunaina who has replaced Bindu Madhavi in the film. The story revolves around a fisherman and Vishnu has tanned himself and lost weight for the role.
