The family which has served a lot to the Tamil film industry, soon will have one more personality to it’s addition. Union Minister Alagiri will make a cameo appearance in his son and distributor Dayanidhi Alagiri’s new Tamil film Thoonga Nagaram, being directed by debutant Gaurav, a former associate of K.S. Ravikumar, under the banner of Cloud Nine Movies.
It is heard that though the minister was initially hesitant, the director was able to convince him about showing the scene as part of the story and not a forced addition. The film was recently launched in Madurai in January to coincide with Alagiri’s birthday.
Set in a Madurai backdrop, the film stars Pasanga Vimal, Bharani and Nishanth as the male leads and Anjali as the female lead. Besides wielding the megaphone, Gaurav dons an important role in the film.
Sundar C. Babu of Anjathey fame is the music director. The movie has cinematography by Vijay Ulaganathan, a former associate of K.V. Anand. Editing is by Suresh and art by Santhanam.
