Doing a role of a real life leader is not new to Prakash Raj. In Mani Ratnam’s ‘Iruvar’ Prakash Raj stole the show by doing the character of Kalaignar Karunanidhi to perfection. With 18 state awards and one national award for acting Prakash Raj will do cent per cent justice if the actor is offered a role.
Last year while speaking at a cultural function held in Karnataka even Prakash Raj had expressed his aspiration for doing the role of Prabhakaran. He said that somebody had offered him the role of Prabhakaran then. Now things are getting serious and strong minds are likely to unite for the act.
Recently Seeman rushed to Hyderabad only to meet up with Prakash Raj who was shooting for a Telugu film. The meeting is buzzing in trade circles.
According sources Seeman met Prakash Raj for talks of doing a mega biopic series on Velupillai Prabhakaran for Makkal TV. And Prakash Raj has been finalised to do the title role. The creative team of the proposed biopic found a lot of similarities in Prakash Raj with the leader in body and body language. And thats why the urgent meeting between Seeman and Prakash Raj
