Director Karu Pazhaniyappan who has directed films Parthiban Kanavu, Sivapadhikaram and Pirivom Sandhipom is turning hero with his next directorial venture titled ‘Mandhira Punnagai’.
The audio of the film was launched at the PVR Multiplex in the city recently. Knowing very well that the journalists would ask him as to what prompted him to don the role of the hero and whether his script was turned down by other heroes, Pazhaniyappan was ready with the answers.
“When I was ready with the script, I told my producer to look for a hero when he prompted me to play the role myself. When the producer is so confident of casting me, why shouldn’t I take the plunge, I thought,” said Pazhaniyappan. The trailer shown on the occasion depicted him in a ‘dizzy’ mood. The bespectacled director had been to the gym to get his body toned up, he revealed.
Speaking about the movie, he said that love does not occur just once in a person’s lifetime. When a press reporter asked if love can occur more than once, he shot back by saying “There can be only one love in a person’s life. But the question is when does that happen?”
Adding to his statement, he said that he still falls in love with interesting women that he comes across in life. “Even my wife may have the same thoughts as mine”, he concluded.
Meenkashi is playing his love interest and Santhanam is taking care of comic portions.
