Be it the raw, intense and eccentric Ayyanar in Mirugam or the sharp investigating officer Vasudevan in Eeram, Tamil actor Aadhi believes in not repeating his roles.

After a two-year hiatus, the actor is all set with Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka (YNK), a true-life inspired film. “It happened in the lives of my brother’s friends in 2000 in Chennai on a New Year Eve. As the title, taken from a Thirukkural verse, which means that if one doesn’t hold their tongue, it will lead to a lot of problem, the film also revolves around this concept,” says Aadhi.

Aadhi’s brother and an alumnus of American Film Institute, Los Angeles, Sathya Prabhas will mark his debut as the director of YNK.

Interestingly,  the film is produced in the duo’s home banner Aadarsha Chitralaya which is managed by their father and accomplished filmmaker Ravi Raja Pinisetty.

Ask Aadhi about working with the family, he says, “The whole family thing is just at home. On the sets, we all are work focused. In fact, during the shoot, I encountered a minor injury and thought that the next action sequence will be shot with a dupe, but my brother was strict I do the part myself. Besides, working with my brother had advantages too as he knows what will be right for me and how to extract the best out of me,” says Aadhi who had come to Kochi for the promotion of the film along with Nikki Galrani and Pasupathi.

Nikki Galrani noted for her roles in 1983 and Vellimoonga will be esaying the role of Kayal, the love interest of Aadhi’s character in the film.

Mithun.jpgMy role will be nothing similar to the roles that I had done in Malayalam films. It will be a surprise for the viewers to see me in this role,” says Nikki for whom Mollywood has always been close to her heart. “Nikki plays a quirky and bubbly girl whom I try to get rid of in the film,” adds Aadhi who promises that their romance is not the normal cliched one. “Our romance is filled with humour,” he says.

YNK narrates the story of four friends where a word said in resentment changes their lives forever. Aadhi plays Saga, a middle class college student who is forced to stand against the most powerful mob lord of Mumbai. “YNK can’t be put in one particular genre. It is a complete package. There is rom-com, family drama and action. It delves into the depth of friendship and second half will be a edge-of-the-seat thriller,” says Aadhi. Shyam, Siddarth and Sree Karthik play Aadhi’s friend.

YNK will also be the first Kollywood outing of Mithun Chakraborty, the three time national award winner. He will be portraying the role of Mudhaliyar, a kingpin from Mumbai.

Pasupathi who dons the role of Deva, a powerful gangster of Chennai in the film, says, “I have a small interesting role in YNK. And as for the film, it will be a visual treat. Director Sathya has a sensible and strong way of narrating it.”

Nasser, Kitti, Richa Pallod, Harish Uthaman, Naraen, Pragathi, Mahadevan and Lakshmi Priya also come in pivotal roles.

Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka will hit the screens on June 26.
