NRI Becomes

Lady luck seems to have played a big role in making Mujeeb, an NRI, an actor. Mujeeb, who now plays the villain in director Rajaganesan’s upcoming film Mudhal Thagaval Arikai, is also its producer.

Sources say that Mujeeb, who was settled in the US, recently chose to come home to Thanjavur for a holiday.  “When he was in Thanjavur, he got to know that a film was being shot near his place. Eager to watch the crew in action, Mujeeb paid a visit to the shooting spot. Director Rajaganesan spotted him and offered him the role of a cop in the film.”

Even before completing this film, Mujeeb has already got a couple of other film offers. Sources say that Mudhal Thagaval Arikkai, which is to release this Friday, is about a gruesome crime and the events that happen after that.

While Rayan plays the hero, Kalpana Jayam is the heroine in the film which has been shot extensively in the Thanjavur and Mannargudi regions of the delta districts.
