Ashwin will begin shooting for Prabhu Solomon’s yet-to-be-titled film after completing the shooting of Enna Solla Pogirai.
Tamil actor Ashwin Kumar Lakshmikanthan, who tasted fame with the reality show Cook with Comali is set to make his debut as the lead in Hariharan’s Enna Solla Pogirai. He has also signed his second film as the lead with Prabhu Solomon, who is known for the 2010 Tamil romantic drama Mynaa. Solomon’s as-of-yet untitled film is touted to be a social drama and will hit the big screen this October.
Ashwin told ETimes that he is ‘excited’ about Prabhu’s film and thinks it will be special in his career. While adding that he cannot let on any details, he said that just as Prabhu Solomon’s films convey a message, the upcoming film has a strong underpinned message too. He further shared that as an upcoming actor he felt hesitant about the project. “But the manner in which Prabhu sir sketched out my role and instilled confidence in me, made me take this up,” he said.
On an interesting note, TOI further states that the yet-to-be-titled film doesn’t have any heroine but well-known comedian Kovai Sarala will feature in an important role. The film will break away from the ‘usual hero-heroine films,’ which serves Ashwin a challenge that he is keen to take up.
Nivas K Prasanna will compose the music. Talking about him, Ashwin described him as the ‘only friend’ he has from the industry and that both of them had no clue that they would work in the film together.
“It was a surprise when I learned that he would be composing music for the film,” said Ashwin, while also adding that even planning on working together wouldn’t have panned out the way it did.
There are some portions for the film to be shot for Enna Solla Pogirai after which he will begin shooting for Solomon’s social drama.
Ashwin has some more portions to be shot for his romantic drama Enna Solla Pogirai, after which he will begin shooting for this project. Solomon’s film unfolds in the setting of Kodaikanal. More details on the film are awaited.
