Actor Vikram’s upcoming film is ‘Cobra’. Ajay Gnanamuthu, who directed the film Imaika Nodigal, has directed the film and AR Rahman has composed the music. KGF heroine Srinidhi Shetty is paired opposite Vikram. Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan has played an important role. The film’s music release was held in Chennai yesterday. In this, the film crew participated.
Speaking at the event, director Ajay Gnanamuthu said, “Can we ask Rahman for the music of producer Lalit Kumar’s film? He asked. He thought he was ‘franking’ me and I was right. After a few days he told Rakhuman to meet him at their house and tell him the story. All I wanted was to meet Rahman and take just one photo with him. No intention of narrating the story.
Similarly, when he met Rahman at his house, was he ready to tell the story? he asked. I want to take a photo with you. Can I take it? I asked first. After taking the photograph I started to narrate the story. He liked the story. He agreed to compose music. After that he has given five songs for ‘Cobra’. Each one is wonderful. Every moment of working with him is unforgettable. I am amazed at his kindness. Waiting for the magical moment when you perform in the background music.
When Irrfan Pathan met him and told him the story, can I act? He asked. I assured him that you can and we hired a Tamil language coach for him and taught him how to pronounce Tamil. We also gave acting training. Within a few days, he was able to pronounce the Tamil language clearly and acted amazingly.
I had director Anurag Kashyap as the villain in the film ‘Imaikka Nodigal’. I have cast Malayalam actor Roshan Mathew as the villain in this film. He will be different. Anurag is many times stronger than Kashyap character. In my films, I always write the screenplay with special emphasis on the villain.
When he met Vikram, the hero of the film, and narrated the story, he listened in silence. No matter what scene I describe on the sets, he surpasses my expectations and performs the scene to an astonishing degree. Seeing his acting skills makes me a little jealous. If I expect 50% finesse…he delivers 100% and amazes. There will be a little competition between me and him on the set. He himself will win. Such a perfectionist.”
