Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon is doing an extended cameo in ‘Walter’, a film starring Sibiraj in the lead role. The team is presently shooting some ‘crucial scenes’ in Kumbakonam.
Says director Anbarasan, “If I reveal anything about Gautham sir’s role, I will be giving away the plot. It will be like an extended cameo. I have known him for some time now. I went to him with this script to get his opinion. He liked this particular character.”
The project had run into trouble after producer Singaravelan staked his claim over the title. The latest is that the Singaravelan has given the title to producer Prabhu Thilak, who has now taken over the project.
‘Walter’ will be an honest drama, set in Kumbakonam, about a small-town cop who gets to investigate a crime. Anbu adds: “Samuthirakani anna has agreed to play a pivotal role in the film. We have also signed up Shirin Kanchwala of ‘Nenjamundu Neramaiyundu Odu Raja’ as the female lead.”
