Kishore in Kamal Haasan’s Thoongavanam

Not just Kannada cinema, Kishore is a known name in Kollywood as well. The actor, who was last seen in the Tamil movies Thilagar and Arrambam, has been roped in for Kamal Haasan’s next, Thoongavanam. Confirming this, the actor told us, “I have a key role in the movie and my character will be introduced in the beginning itself. I can’t reveal much about my role as it is being kept secret.”

Apart from Kamal, the action-thriller also has Trisha and Prakash Raj in prominent roles. Kishore is looking forward to working with Kamal, who he thinks is a “meticulous actor”. “He comes with loads of experience and there is no one like him. I was just a spectator during the discussions that we had about the movie,” he says. Kishore is currently busy shooting for Tund Haikal Sahavasa and is expected to join the cast of Thoongavanam in Hyderabad soon. He will shoot for the Tamil movie for the next two months.

My First Straight Telugu Film in a long time: Kamal Haasan.

For the first time, Kamal is said to be making a project As bilingual in Tamil and Telugu. And hence Cheekati Rajyam will be his straight Telugu film, as almost all his Tamil films were only dubbed into Telugu.
Speaking about the film, Trisha said that her character in Cheekati Rajyam is a never done before one and it’s a dream come true moment for her to work with Kamal Haasan for the second time.

Cheekati Rajyam or Thoongaa Vanam has Kishore of Veerappan fame playing an important role.

“When I said my next film will be a direct Telugu venture, many didn’t believe. But now Cheekati Rajyam is indeed a Telugu film and that’s why we are going to shooting in Hyderabad first” said Kamal Haasan at the launch.

“Trisha asked me why her look in the film has not been released. It has come out really well than these first look stills featuring my character but we are reserving it for the second look” clarified Kamal.

Kamal added “It’s normal for actors to say that their character is a very different one but as far as Trisha’s role in Cheekati Rajyam is concerned, it’s quite true”

Kamal also promised that Thoongaa Vanam will be a racy action thriller with duration of 120 minutes and the basic idea is to keep the audience engaged.

Prakash Raj, Rajesh M Selva, cinematographer Sanu Varghese and many others were also present at the media meet.
