Vaibhav’s upcoming film, Meyaadha Maan, is set in North Madras and will show its good side. The film’s director Rathna Kumar told Deccan Chronicle:
“When I saw people of Royapuram and Kasi Medu area, I found many creative people, who are good at singing, lyrics writing, tabla, dolak etc. In the film, Vaibhav, who has finished college, runs a light music troupe. He is shy to talk to girls, but confesses his love openly. That’s why he is called Idhayam Murali, named after late hero Murali!”
Rathna Kumar’s first choice for the female lead was Sai Pallavi, but she could not take it up. Television star Priya Bhavani Sankar now has been roped in.
“Initially we wanted to cast Sai Pallavi, but her dates were not available. So we had announced for a casting call on social media when we got a response from Priya Bhavani Sankar. We called her for audition and she fitted the role of Madhu to a tee!”
Based on Bench Talkies’ popular Madhu short film, Meyaadha Maan has music by Santhosh Narayanan and Pradeep Kumar. It is scheduled to release later this year.
