In his recent interview to Vikatan, KV Anand said that he had approached Amitabh Bachchan to play the role of Prime Minister in his upcoming movie Kaappaan but it couldn't materialize due to dates issue. The director then approached Mohanlal for the role. Anand says that Mohanlal majestically pulled off the character with great ease.
The Ayan director also revealed that each character in Kaappaan including Suriya will have both positive and negative shades. “Suriya has given his best in the film. For a particular scene, we took multiple takes but still Suriya wasn’t satisfied with the shot and went for one more take”, said Anand.
Talking about Sayyeshaa, the director said: “People think that she can only dance well but Sayyeshaa is brilliant with her wide range of reactions”.
Produced by Lyca, the film also has Arya, Samuthirakani, and Boman Irani in pivotal characters.
