Actor Amar Choudary, aka Jiiva, has partnered up alongside his producer dad R. B. Choudary for the upcoming film, Varalaru Mukkiyam. The project was announced on Tuesday, on the actor’s 37th birthday. Santhosh Rajan is said to be scripting the comedy-drama, which R. B. Choudary will fund through Super Good Films.
Kashmira Pardesi, best known for her role in the Akshay Kumar-Vidya Balan starrer Mission Mangal, as well as model and actor Pragya Nagra are said to be starring in Varalaru Mukkiyam.
The father-son duo has previously collaborated on movies such as Aasai Aasaiyai in 2003 that heralded Jiiva’s debut appearance as a leading man. Thithikudhe, Kacheri Arambam, and Jilla are a few other notable films of his.
His Best Performances:
S. P. Jananathan helmed the film E (trans. The Fly), a 2006 Tamil-language medical thriller. Jiiva and Nayanthara were cast in the lead roles, with Ashish Vidyarthi, Pasupathy, and Karunas playing secondary roles in the story. Srikanth Deva created the soundtrack for the film. The movie was praised for its unique premise that linked to real-life healthcare scandals. The film was a box office success, although it received mixed reviews from critics.
- Kattradhu Thamizh
Kattradhu Thamizh is a Tamil-language psychological thriller movie directed by Ram, who marked his directorial debut. The movie revolves around a typical young Tamil postgrad student who becomes a tormented subject of Chennai’s urbanization. Spurred by the thriving IT sector, he gradually forfeits his mental equilibrium and becomes a psychopath. According to director Ram, the film seeks to investigate the consequences of a society which completely disregards the arts and humanities sectors. Although the picture was not an economic success at the time of its release, it developed a fan base later on. Jiiva was greatly lauded for his performance in the movie.
Jiiva garnered excellent feedback for his performance as feisty Indian opener Krishnamachari Srikkanth in the movie, which has been centred around India’s momentous World Cup triumph in 1983.
