Nivetha Pethuraj, the ‘Oru Naal Koothu’ girl who is now eagerly expecting the release of her next film ‘Tik Tik Tik’ with Jeyam Ravi, is playing a police officer for the first time in ‘Thimiru Pudichavan’.
Directed by debutant Ganesha, the movie has music composer-turned-actor Vijay Antony in the lead role. He too is playing a police officer in this flick.
Says the director, “I wanted someone who can ride a Bullet to play the role. In fact, when I first met Nivetha, I asked her if she knew how to ride that bike. She immediately said she would learn it and soon began training for the same.”
Talking about the movie, he says, “There will be power-packed action sequences and an intense drama. Instead of the regular hero-villain kind of sequences, this one is a mind game.”
Stating that he waited for three years with this script, the filmmaker adds: “I was in no mood to settle for
someone else for the role as I felt only Vijay Antony would be apt for it. Eventually, things fell in place and Vijay was on board.”
