Actor Radha Ravi talks about his character in Thalapathy 62
After receiving lukewarm response for his last film Spyder, director AR Murugadoss has moved on to his next project, tentatively titled Thalapathy 62. He has pulled a coup of sorts by roping in the best of actors for this venture.
Veteran actor Radha Ravi will play one of the antagonists in Thalapathy 62. Recently, the actor opened about his role and showered praises on Vijay, in an interview to a YouTube channel. He said, “I play a minister in the film. There are a lot of sequences where Vijay and I will have a face-off. It is a nice character.”
Lauding Vijay’s simplicity, Radha Ravi shared, “I played Vijay’s father in his debut film Naalaya Theerpu, but only in AR Murugadoss’s film, I have got the opportunity to work with him closely. He is so simple and humble. For an actor of his stature, he can easily demand the director to wrap up his portions first. But, Vijay patiently sleeps on the floor for hours, till the director completes the sequences of other actors. He doesn’t go to his caravan at all.”
He further appreciated director Murugadoss saying that he doesn’t boss around just because he is the captain of the ship.
Thalapathy 62 has Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Yogi Babu and Prem Kumar as part of the ensemble cast.
