His last movie, Pizza 2: Villa was a horror film
Actor Ashok Selvan’s last release Tamil horror-thriller Pizza 2: Villa catered to fans of the horror genre but he says his forthcoming release Thegidi is for everybody.
“My last film Pizza 2… was for a niche audience, fans of the horror genre, but Thegidi is for everybody. It doesn’t aim to cater to any particular section of the audience. It has something to offer to all types of audiences,” Ashok said.
A murder mystery, Thegidi is directed by debutante P Ramesh, winner of a reality show Naalaya Iyakunar. Incidentally, Ashok’s first two films were also with first time directors from the same show.
“I think I have been lucky to work with young directors from the same show. The experience has been great and our working relationship is excellent. I get to pitch my inputs and they listen to whatever I have to say,” he said.
“Another coincidence is that all the three films have the same producer. I think it’s because of my producer I got to work with these young directors. I have to thank my producers,” he added.
Ashok’s Soodhu Kavvum and Pizza 2: Villa were produced by CV Kumar, who has also co-produced Thegidi with his brother.
Janani Iyer plays the female lead in Thegidi which is likely to hit the screens February end.
