Mahadevan, who is debuting as a hero in Tamil cinema through Ennul Aayiram, a film being produced by his father and veteran actor Delhi Ganesh, says his film career is the result of a pact he made with his father.

But my dad (Delhi Ganesh) was particular that I pursue my education and complete higher studies. So we made a pact. He said he would get me into films if I still wanted to be an actor after completing my higher education. I agreed and decided to do masters in engineering and business management at Coventry University in the UK,” says the actor.

“After completing the course, I invited him to the UK for my graduation. He then asked if I still wanted to be an actor and I said ‘yes’. He replied, ‘In that case, what's the point of me coming there for your graduation ceremony? You come here.’ That's how my film career began,” says Mahadevan.

The film, directed by Krishna Kumar, is a romantic crime thriller. “It is a crime story which features me and Marina Michael, a Malayalam actor in the lead. It is about a 25-year-old Ashok, who, like any other youngster, experiences all the emotions of life including love, fear, lust and anger. That’s why the film is titled Ennul Aayiram. Fate plays a game in this character’s life and that’s what the film is about,” explains Mahadevan. The team is planning to release the film on April 1.
