Arjun Sarja enters Mani Ratnam’s ‘Flower Shop’, and also Bollywood
The Tamil action hero will star in Pookkadai and is all set to produce, direct and act in a Bollywood film
It’s official. Kollywood action hero Arjun Sarja has signed up to play a pivotal central role in Mani Ratnam’s keenly anticipated film Pookkadai (Flower Shop). It will be the first time that the two are pairing up. Arjun is no stranger to big movies or directors, having worked with Shankar in Gentleman and Mudhalvan. For Mani, Pookkadai will be a return to what he does best – a young love story – after the humongous disaster that was Raavan. Pookkadai will star Gautham, son of yesteryear Tamil hero Karthik, whose most memorable roles were in Mani’s Mouna Ragam and Agni Natchathiram. We’ll kindly forget Karthik’s execrable turn as Hanuman in Raavanan, a role played superiorly by Govinda in Raavan. Rajiv Menon, who shot Guru and Bombay for Mani, will be the cinematographer. Speculation is also rife about the heroine of Pookkadai. It was meant to be Akshara Hassan, Kamal Haasan and Sarika’s younger daughter, but now we hear that she’ll be an assistant director on the film. It now looks like a toss up between Parthepan’s daughter Keerthana (who played a cute as a button kid in Mani’s Kannathil Mutthamittal) or Radha’s daughter Thulasi. Bollywood best remembers Radha for shaking her thunder thighs along with Jeetendra in several southern flavoured Hindi films in the ’80s. Click here to read more
