Feb 28, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): South Indian actor Aadhi starrer Kumbh Mela completes 20 percent shooting. Aadhi’s co-stars in the movie are Poorna (female lead), yesteryear actors, Ravichandran and K. R. Vijaya, as well as Suresh, of Panneer Pushpangal fame, in a powerful role.
Produced by Michael Rayappan, of Nadodigal (2009) fame, and directed by Vijaya Prakash, the story of Kumba Mela revolves around the relationship between a father and his son. Needless to say, the commercial ingredients – romance, comedy and action – will be a part of the movie as well.
The unit of the movie did not want the usual grandeur that accompanies a launch, so they started shooting without announcing an official media release. At present, Ayyanar, the movie that Aadhi has worked on forever, it seems, is nearing completion.
Aadhi’s debut film, Mirugam, may have fetched rave reviews and laurels for his performance, but it is his second film, Eeram, that catapulted him to fame. Eeram is a supernatural thriller, and it proved to be the bigger milestone in actor Aadhi’s career, leading to an onslaught of offers from Kollywood film makers.
