Cheenu Mohan’s role in Vijay’s ‘Mersal’
Actor Cheenu Mohan, who was last seen in Karthik Subburaj’s Iraivi, has signed his next. The actor cannot contain his happiness, after all, for he will next be seen in director Atlee and actor Vijay’s action-packed Mersal.
Talking about getting this opportunity to work in the film, he says, “It is not easy to get a chance to work with Vijay, and when I got a call from Atlee’s team, I immediately accepted. I cannot wait to start shooting with the team. Atlee, I think, is a great director and brings out the best in an actor, which is very important.”
On his role, he says, “I play the role of the heroine’s father in the movie. I will start shooting for the role from the first week of July. I am glad that I have a lot of combination scenes with Vijay. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
While the first look stills of Vijay’s Mersal are creating a buzz, the film’s producer Hema Rukmani says that the Thalapathy is not just a mass star, but also an outstanding actor. Mersal is being directed by Atlee, his Theri director, and the movie’s music has been composed by AR Rahman.
“Most people look at Vijay as a ‘mass actor.’ But, I’ve seen him perform. He’s an outstanding actor. I’ve noticed a lot of things during shooting. His sense of continuity is brilliant. He will know even the minutest details like where and how he kept his hand or leg during a particular shot. Whether the assistant director remembers or not, he will know. I had the great joy of watching him improvise. In the whole Europe schedule, I was there every day on set. So, I could see him improvise, and it’s a treat. He has a charm of him which crosses borders and boundaries,” Hema told PTI.
