Jayam Raja seems to be the latest addition to the list of directors turning into an Actor. The older brother of ‘Jayam’ Ravi, who has four blockbusters to his credit all starring Jayam Ravi as the hero and all four remakes from telugu, would wear the mask of a hero soon, if circles close to him are to be believed.
Confirming this, Raja’s father ‘Editor’ Mohan, one of the top producers of Tamil cinema, says, “Raja is very handsome and has all the qualities and skills to become a hero. We are planning to launch him as an actor soon.”
He adds: “We are currently listening to scripts from various aspiring filmmakers. And will make an announcement once we find an apt storyline and character which would establish Raja as a good actor.”
On his forthcoming ‘Thillalangadi’, which is directed by Raja with Ravi in the lead, he says, “though we are known for remakes, we always wanted to present something different. ‘Thillalangadi’ would live up to Jayam Company’s name.”
