Producer RK Suresh, who played the antagonist in Vishal’s Marudhu and Sasikumar’s Thaarai Thappattai is all set to star in Chiyaan Vikram’s next directed by Vijay Chander.
Produced by Silverline Film Factory, the principal shoot of the yet-untitled film has commenced on Friday (February 10) in Chennai.
Vikram will play a local gangster in the film, while the rest of the star cast includes Tamanah, Soori, Radha Ravi and Ravi Kishan.
Thaman will take care of the songs and background score of the film and Sukumar is handling the cinematography department.
Suresh is thrilled about playing villain role in this flick. He heads the production company, Studio 9. In 2015, Suresh became an actor, worked in Bala’s Tharai Thappattai and Muthiah’s Marudhu.
Suresh, the son of the producer of the Murali-starrer Poo Vaasam (1999), wanted to be a part of the film industry after being told he had the looks of an actor by director Samuthirakani at a gymnasium. He subsequently began looking for acting opportunities and approached several producers to no avail. He was offered a role as an extra in Pudhupettai (2006), but his father made him return the advance after being unimpressed about the stature of the role.
Suresh then began a film distribution business and experienced success by distributing films such as Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom (2012), Soodhu Kavvum (2013) and Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara (2013), before first working as a producer with Salim (2014).
