Kavin’s upcoming film Star has been making a lot of noise among fans who have been waiting to see the budding talent on screen after his much successful outing Dada. Elan, who is directing Star, spoke about Kavin’s acting methods in a recent interview. The debutant director pointed out that the Dada actor is very conscious about not going overboard with his acting.  

“I see Kavin as a relatable actor. He is also very conscious about not going overboard when it comes to acting. Even while shooting for Star there were few scenes, where it is required to be a little more than natural acting. Even in those moments, he was very conscious about how much reaction is required,” the director revealed. He also added that the actor maintains a ‘metre’ for acting which he appreciates.  

Elan also revealed he did not know Kavin until he watched the film Dada. Later, he narrated his script for Star to the actor, who liked it. He then immediately said yes to the script and came on board for the project.
