Director AMR Ramesh’s upcoming bilingual (Kannada and Tamil) Game, is getting bigger and better as more people are getting involved in the project. The director has already roped in Arjun Sarja to play the role of an investigating officer, while Shaam has recently been confirmed as the main antagonist, a role that was initially supposed to be played by the director himself. “Now that Shaam will be the villain, I want to continue the suspense around my role in the film,” says Ramesh.

There is a long association between Arjun and Manisha as they had worked together in Mudhalvan (1999) directed by S Shankar, which was declared a box office hit. The film was also made in Telugu as Oke Okkadu. “Arjun had already spoken to Manisha about the role and when I briefed her about the script and the role, she was impressed with the character that we have envisioned her playing. The role has many grey shades, which she felt was quite unique and interesting. I am in Mumbai today for the final narration and for running through the formalities before she signs on the dotted line. Arjun Sarja and Manisha were a hit pair in their last film Mudhalvan. However, this time, there will be a twist in their pairing,” says Ramesh.

With Game, Manisha will return to the South industry after a long gap and also make her Sandalwood debut. The first look and photo shoot for Game was recently held in Chennai with Arjun and Shaam. Apparently Arjun’s daughter Aishwarya was so excited with the story of the film and her father’s role in it that she has decided to involve herself with the project and taken up the responsibility of styling Arjun’s looks,” reveals the director.

While Ramesh is yet to finalise another female lead for the film, the other players are warming up to their roles. “Almost everything has fallen in place and it is time we start the film now,” he says.
