Padhinaaru is my best film as Actor: Shiva

Shiva - Madhu Shalini in Pathinaaru

‘Tamizh Padam’ Shiva gets ready for his next release ‘Padhinaaru’. The affable star, who had worked as a radio jockey prior to plunging into films, is very particular that ‘Padhinaaru’ should fare well at the box-office especially after the not-so-successful showing of his last film ‘Va Quarter Cutting’.

‘Padhinaaru’ marks the return to action in respect of directir Sababathi, who has made films like ‘Sundarapurushan’, ‘VIP’ and ‘Punnagai Poovae’ in the past. The film has Madhu Shalini, a newcomer as Shiva’s heroine. Shiva, much like the character he played in the successful ‘Tamizh Padam’ early this year, speaks in an ever-so-casual manner.

“I won’t say the usual talk said by heroes on the eve of release of all of their films. Whenever I’m asked about my films, I used to say that it’d be ‘quite boring’. I said the same about ‘Chennai 600 028’ and ‘Tamizhpadam’, which turned out to be highly successful ventures. Having said that, I honestly believe that ‘Padhinaaru’ could actually be the best film of mine as an actor.”, he said.

“All of us do fall in love with girls while in School. Many a time we would wonder as to what could probably have happened to the girl. That sort of love affair could be very thrilling; Sababathy has dealt with one such love affair in ‘Padhinaaru’. Like many others, I too wish him a bright future in Kollywood,” said Shiva and finished his talk with a ‘punch’ in the form of a request to the director to ‘include his photo’ too in the advertisements of the film in the print and television media.
