Mahendran’s request to AtleePublished: April 2, 2016
Many of us know veteran director Mahendran is the villain of Vijay’s ‘Theri‘, directed by Atlee. The latest update is that the ‘Mullum Malarum’ and ‘Johny’ maker is getting ready to weild the megaphone again and sought Atlee’s help too.
“Atlee is a very good script writer and I realised it while shooting for ‘Theri’. Hence, I have asked him pen the script of my upcoming film,” says Mahendran.
On working with Vijay, the director says, “he is one of the best commercial heroes of Tamil cinema and despite his top position, he stays calm and remains simple. I enjoyed working with him.”
Ask him about his role in the movie, Mahendran says with a smile, “I play the role of a wicked minister and Vijay plays a police officer who takes on me. The rest, you have to watch on screen.”
