Andrea Jeremiah in Anel Meley Pani Thuli poster
Actor Dhanush had released the first look poster of Andrea Jeremiah's Anel Meley Pani Thuli, recently. Directed by debutant director R Kaiser Anand, the film will stream on SonyLIV soon. However, the date of the release hasn't been confirmed, yet.
Award-winning filmmaker Vetrimaaran, who has produced Siddharth's Udhayam NH4, Aishwarya Rajesh's Kaaka Muttai, Miga Miga Avasaram, Samuthirakani's Sangathalaivan, under his Grassroot Film Company banner, will be bankrolling Anel Meley Pani Thuli. The film, named after the song from Gautham Menon's Vaaranam Aayiram, has music by Santhosh Narayanan and cinematography by Velraj.
On the directorial front, Vetrimaaran has Viduthalai (starring Soori and Vijay Sethupathi) and Suriya's Vaadivaasal, in the pipeline.
Meanwhile, Andrea has Mysskin's Pisaasu 2, Kaa, Maaligai and an untitled one, with director Dinesh Selvaraj. All of these projects are in different stages of production.
In Kaa, Andrea will be seen as a wildlife photographer. Directed by Nanjil, Kaa also features Salim Ghouse, as a wildlife warden. The late Bollywood actor-theatre artiste was known for his roles in Tamil films like Kamal Haasan's Vetri Vizhaa, Mani Ratnam's Thirudaa Thirudaa, Vijayakanth's Chinna Gounder and Thalapathy Vijay's Vettaikaaran. Actor Vijay Sethupathi had released the trailer of Kaa. The film is produced by John Max under the banner of Shalom Studios. Also, 'Kaa' denotes a jungle or forest in English.
“An actor by circumstance”, Andrea Jeremiah, whose Oo Solriya Mama from Allu Arjun's Pushpa, became a rage, in an interview with the Hindu, says, "When you are in the right role when you are part of the right story, it is an intensely satisfying experience. Then, it is worth all the hell you go through!"
Andrea, who was seen latest in Vijay's Master and Sundar C's Aranmanai 3, considers Vetrimaaran's Vada Chennai, "an important film", in her career. Speaking about her choice of films, she tells the Hindu, "I chose these films because when I was doing them, it was not about me. I got sucked into the characters I played. And that is a beautiful experience."
Andrea is keen to not repeat herself. She adds, in the interview, "I get bored easily. For instance, I didn’t do my next film, Maaligai for myself; I did it for the audience… the same way, I did Aranmanai. Because you can’t always choose roles that make you feel ‘the actor in me wants to do this. In commercial cinema, once in a while, you need to do something that the masses will enjoy. You need to be commercially successful, too, to be able to do the films that you want to do. It’s a pay-off."
