After Kamal Haasan, Vijay and Suriya donning the cop’s uniform in reel life, it is Attakathi Dinesh’s turn now. Dinesh has been given the opportunity to play a cop in Thirudan Police, in Kenaaya Films and Capital Film Works’ joint production. He will be seen in four different get ups. Tough villains Naan Kadavul Rajendran and John Vijay will also be donning unusual get ups in the action comedy. Aishwarya Rajesh plays the female lead, donning a trendy glam look.

The film is directed by Caarthick Raju, a debutant who has worked as special effects expert along with producer J Selvakumar in several films. “We worked as a team in over 30 films, right from Shankar’s Jeans. Later, I worked in Kamal Haasan’s Dasavatharam and several Telugu films. Now, I decided to take the plunge into directing,” says Caarthick.

Dinesh was trained to get his body language right for the policeman’s role, by a constable friend. He sports a closely-cropped hairstyle and has toned up for the tough cop he plays in the movie. “Dinesh has done a brilliant job as a cop. He has delivered some power-packed action sequences under stunt master Dilip Subbrayan, which will earn him applause in theatres,” says Caarthick.

Dinesh will be seen in four looks — an aimless youngster, a college boy who turns lover, a ruffian seeking revenge for his dad’s death, and a rugged cop. “We waited six months for Dinesh to shoot him as a cop. That’s because he was doing Cuckoo, for which he had longer hair and a beard. We shot a few portions earlier with that look. Then we made him shave and crop his hair for the cop look,” says Caarthick. The music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Siddharth cranks the camera.
