The shooting of Appatakkar is taking place near Pollachi. This film has Jayam Ravi, Soori, Trisha and Anjali in the cast. Sooraj is directing the film.
Sequences pertaining to Jayam Ravi and Trisha are being shot there. Jayam Ravi during the shooting break said, “I have been acting for the last 10 years. The film Jayam earned me a good name.
After this, the films I had acted earned me a good name. 99% of my films were certified with U certificates. Only two of my films got U/A certificate because of some violence. I will always give opportunity to new directors. As far as cinema is concerned, new directors are required.
They only create a new path. Only these new directors elevate the top heroes. I am interested to act in a film which has two heroes. The two heroes should have equivalent roles. It is great gift for me because people come with their families to watch my films. People are not interested in seeing the same incidents again and again.
They like good entertainers which have comedy, songs and scenes. At a time when family oriented films have become less I am happy that I am still acting in them. In the recent days, there are lots of physical transformations because of the story. There is nothing wrong in it. For the first time in South Indian Film industry, I was the one who reduced my weight by 15 kilos for the film Peranmai.
Because of this I did not act in any other films. That film came out well. Currently I am acting in Appatakkar, Thani Oruvan and Romeo Juliet. All the stories have different stories. There will be comedy, action and thriller. There is vast different between Ravi who had acted in Jayam and Ravi who is now acting in Appatakkar. When I first came to cinema, I came as a student.
No I have become a student who can score more marks. My friendship circle has become big. In future, I am planning to produce films. Similarly I also want to direct films but I have to achieve lot in acting. If I feel that I have achieved my goal, I will start directing and producing films. if there is failure in my life and cinema, my brother Raja is there to help and support me. Because of this I need not worry about anything.”
