Prabhu Solomon

It was a dream debut for newbie Chandran when he was  selected as hero in Prabhu Solomon’s Kayal. The long wait and gruelling schedules were well worth it once the film received kudos upon release. Prabhu is known to have catapulted many actors and technicians into fame. Chandran, a former marketing executive, is now part of the list. CE learnt that Prabhu has selected Chandran as the hero of his next home production, under his God Pictures banner. The movie will be directed by Saattai director Anbazhagan, his former assistant.

 A little birdie tells us that the film will be going on the floors this month and the pre-production work has been going on for the past two months. The movie is set in a small town and the rest of the cast and crew are being finalised. While the heroine will be a newbie, D Imman, who has given hit music in sync with Prabhu’s sensibilities in the past, will be composing the music. Yugabharathy will be  writing the lyrics.

When CE contacted Chandran, he was tight-lipped about the project. “It’s better if the production house reveals the news first,” he said with a smile.

The actor says that he has been receiving many offers. “Prior to release also, I had been getting offers but I wanted to enjoy every bit of the honeymoon period before the release of my first film! Once Kayal released, the pressure to make the right choice for the  second film began building up. I was hesitant to accept just anything since the roles offered were similar to that in Kayal in which I play a vagabond traveller and lover,” he says.

Chandran continues to be lucky, given his second flick also is will his mentor Prabhu.

“It’s a big honour and opportunity for me, since Prabhu sir usually doesn’t work with the same lead actors again. So if he’s casting me, I think that’s a huge step ahead in my career as a newcomer. I feel really blessed. In fact, he had announced during the audio launch of Kayal that he would work with me again, but when he actually called me up for  it,  I was ecstatic,” says Chandran with a smile. The icing on the cake is that his role is going to be very different from that in Kayal, and will give him huge scope to perform.
