The title and first look of Cheran’s upcoming directorial, Thirumanam, was revealed by Vijay Sethupathi. The actor-director, who usually plays the lead in his directorials, plays a supporting character in Thirumanam.
The movie is said to be about human relationships and stars Thambi Ramaiah’s son, Umapathy, and Kavya Suresh in the lead.
Speaking at the launch event, Cheran said, “I lost money in the C2H and was down for a few years. But I met a lot of people around that time which helped me know the life more.”
He said further: “A single announcement from Vijay Sethupathi saying that he would do a film with me actually relaxed my financial situation. The money lenders got a confidence that I will return back their money.”
He added: “Thirumanam will talk directly to the middle and lower income section of the society. I am sure it will be a successful film – both critically and commercially.”
On working with Vijay Sethupathi, he said, “After actor Murali, I would say Vijay Sethupathi is the most wonderful human being I have seen. I have already written a story for him and I think we will do one down the line when the time comes.”
