Jeeva plays an ethical hacker in Kee
The actor's knowledge of technology is said to have come in handy for the role
Actor Jiiva's upcoming Tamil film Kee is based on hacking and he will play an ethical hacker.
Director Kalees says Jiiva's sound knowledge of technology came in handy for the role."Jiiva sir is into technology. He has watched several documentaries on hacking, and all that knowledge and experience came handy while shooting. He was quite kicked to play a hacker," says the filmmaker.
In the film, Jiiva plays a student who hacks for fun, and in the process, he uncovers something very dark. Kee also stars Nikki Galrani, and it is gearing up for release soon.
Asked about the film's title Kee, the director says, "The word 'Kee' is very popular in Tamil literature and it means everything - both positive and negative. We thought we could also use it as a metaphor for the word key in computer/technology and how it can change everything."
