Following the success of his critically acclaimed debut film, Tharamani, actor Vasanth Ravi is pinning hopes on his second film, which will be directed by debutant Arun Matheshwaran. Titled Rocky, the film is touted to be an interesting action drama.
“After a successful debut, especially after being part of a film like Tharamani, its definitely not easy for an actor to choose a script. I became cautious and selective as I wanted to do a film that shows me in a different light altogether. That’s when Arun came to me with this script and I loved it. And the fact that he has written the dialogues for Irudhi Suttru and his association with Thiagarajan Kumararaja made me to opt for this project without any second thought,” Vasanth tells DTNext.
The actor also explains how Rocky was narrated to many A-list stars in industry before him coming into the scene. “Arun was planning to do this film with popular stars in K’wood but due to many reasons, things got delayed.” He adds, “We have completed more than 50 per cent of the film, and major portions were shot in Dhanushkodi. The second schedule of the film will begin in Chennai, and I am looking forward to the shoot.” Revealing more details about the genre, he says, “The entire film is set against a gangster backdrop, and I am sure it will be an unique experience for the movie-goers. The film also deals with intense emotions based on relationships. I don’t want to reveal anything more as of now.”
There were also reports that director Mysskin will play the role of an antoganist in the film. “It’s true that he was supposed to play the villain. But since he got busy with Udhayanidhi’s Psycho, he couldn’t be a part of this project. We have roped in another popular actor for that role, and the makers will announce it soon.” Vasanth also tells us that he has two looks in the film, and it will be revealed close to the release. “I have toned up my body as it is an action flick. I have another look in the film which is still under wraps.” On his upcoming projects, he says, “I am listening to quite a few scripts now. But I want to take one film at a time.”
