CHENNAI: Known for his acting prowess and hard work, actor Vikram has essayed various off-beat roles in the past. And this time, he’s all set to play a five-year-old boy in ‘Deiva Thirumagan’, directed by Vijay of 'Madharasapattinam’ fame.

Krishna, Vikram’s character in the film, is a grown-up man, with the mental maturity of a five-year-old boy. The teasers and the trailer of the movie were screened for the first time to the media at a press meet organised by the film’s crew on Sunday.

Speaking about the film, ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram said that it would be a “turning point” in his career. “I enjoyed doing the film and the shooting was like a holiday. Everyone says that I have acted well, but I know I wouldn’t have done it without the team.”

Vikram, who has also sung a song in ‘Deiva Thirumagan’, was all praise for veteran actor Nasser, who plays a pivotal role in the film. Praising Vikram, the director said, “He has done a lot of homework. He used to visit Vidya Sagar (a school for children with special needs), and spend hours there.”

Talking about the actresses, Vikram said, “Anushka is a glamour queen in the Southern film industry. But in this film, you will see her in a different role. Amala Paul has played a fantastic role, one that’s very different one from ‘Mynaa’.”

Mohan Natarajan’s Sri Rajakaliamman Medias, has produced the movie. The cast includes Santhanam, MS Bhaskar, Pandi, Kishore and Krishna Kumar among others.

Shot in Ooty and Chennai, the audio of the film would be out on April 14. It is slated to release in May.
