After Zero got thumbs up from the critics, actor Ashwin became a reliable protagonist for medium-budget films. Now the actor’s light hearted romantic comedy Thollaikatchi is in the final stage of shoot. “It’s about how television medium changes people’s persona; some for the better, some for the worse. My character is a would-be hero who believes in astrology. Janani Iyer plays the female lead in this film, which is bound to make you glad,” smiles the handsome actor Ashwin.
Debutant director Sadiq Khan who had earlier assisted directors A R Murugadoss and Lingusamy says, “For the first time, Ashwin sport a new look and plays a rural character. The film is a full-length comedy entertainer, which is set against the backdrop of a village”. Hope Thollaikatchi will be another milestone in the actor’s career.
