Sivaji Dev back with a bang
Sivaji Dev, grandson of the late legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan, who debuted in the Madurai-based film Singakutty, went into hibernation only to return with a bang.
The actor says that he went to London for a brief stint and took up an acting course. “I was waiting for a good script when director Shyamalan approached me with this city-based script Nandhanam. I play an IT professional and it’s a different take on romance,” Dev tells DC.
Mithra Kurien, who declined many offers post her role opposite Vijay in Kaavalan, finally gave a nod for Nandhanam. Talking about the film, the director says, “It is a triangular love story told in an unusual way.
The entire film takes place in an IT company and has been shot mostly in the city’s Nandhanam area. There’s a social message for the GenY as well.”
