Manoj Beedha, former assistant of SP Jananathan (of Peranmai fame), has turned director with Vanjagar Ulagam, which has Guru Somasundaram and Chandini Tamilarasan in the lead.
“It’s a romantic thriller. When I narrated the story to Guru, he got excited. We spoke for nearly an hour, and he had a lot of questions about his gangster character,” says Manoj, who’s all praise for the Joker actor.
“Guru was a delight to work with. Being from a theatre background, he gave the role more than what I expected,” he adds.
Vanjagar Ulagam’s biggest plus is the cinematography, according to Manoj. “We managed to roped in a Mexican cinematographer, Rodrigo Del Herrera.” Music for the film is by Sam CS of Vikram Vedha fame.
