Actor Harish Kalyan is promoting his upcoming film, Pyaar Prema Kaadhal in full-swing. However, he talks to us in the middle of a busy Sunday with his friends. “Pyaar Prema Kaadhal is a crucial film of my career as it is the first release of me post Bigg Boss Season 1. I wanted to capitalise on the positivity I garnered through the reality show and was looking for a good script. That is when I landed Pyaar Prema Kaadhal,” he begins. Divulging to us about his role in the film, he says that he plays a naïve middle-class boy. “As you would have seen the first look posters, you would have seen me in contrasting costumes.
One with a lungi and the other in which I am well groomed. I play a middle-class boy whose father is a TV mechanic and his mom does tailoring for a living. In the film you could see me in a lungi in the house and dressed up well outside to meet his potential brides. It is an organic film which revolves around various comical situations. Though it is a romcom, Elan has given it a unique treatment and will make for a good watch,” adds the actor.
Talking about sharing screen space with his fellow Bigg Boss contestant, Raiza Wilson, he says, “We have successfully carried our chemistry from the Bigg Boss house to PPK. I was pleasantly surprised to know that Raiza will play the heroine in the film. We have worked hard for our portions and the efforts have paid off well.” Harish Kalyan says that Pyaar Prema Kaadhal initially was the brainchild of Yuvan Shankar Raja. “With 12 tracks, BGM and short music clips, Pyaar Prema Kaadhal is a musical. Yuvan wanted to do a complete romantic album and wanted a script built around it. That is how Pyaar Prema Kaadhal happened. Also, as a producer he ensures that things are well-planned, and his team closely followed up with the requirements.” Post PPK, Harish says that his next film is with director Ranjith Jeyakodi of Puriyaatha Puthir fame. “For now, I am focussed on PPK’s release,” he concludes.
