Fans are eagerly waiting for Ashwin Kumar Lakshmikanthan’s debut as a hero in Enna Solla Pogirai. Ashwin will now team up with director Prabhu Solomon very soon. Touted to be a social drama, the film is expected to hit the floors on October.
“This will be a special film in my career. The script is offbeat and I am excited to see myself in a new avatar. Though I can’t reveal any details about the project, Prabu Solomon sir’s films always have a message. This one, too, has a solid takeaway for audiences. As an upcoming actor I was apprehensive if I should do this project, but the manner in which Prabhu sir sketched out my role and instilled confidence in me, made me take this up,” the debutant actor says.
The film has no female lead though Kovai Sarala will be featured in a prominent role. “Moving away from the usual hero-heroine films will be a big challenge. And I’m ready to take on it,” Ashwin says, smiling.
About Nivas K Prasanna, who is scoring music for the yet-to-be-titled Prabu Solomon directorial, the actor added, “We’ve been friends for a while and he’s probably the only friend I know from the industry. While both of us weren’t aware that we were going to be doing this project, it was a surprise when I learned that he would be composing music for the film. I am sure even if we had planned to work together, this wouldn’t have come through the way it is now.”
Ashwin will soon wrap up shooting for the romantic drama Enna Solla Pogirai and start working on his second project. The movie is set against the backdrop of Kodaikanal and the team will be heading there in the first week of October to begin shooting for it.
