For Vanamagan, actor Jayam Ravi sought inspiration from the great Charlie Chaplin because he only had six lines of dialogue to deliver and had to communicate primarily with expressions.

He says, "The character I've played is unprecedented in Indian cinema. I will cherish this my entire life. I sought inspiration from the great  actor Charlie Chaplin. This affirms that cinema has no language."

Jayam Ravi, along with director A L Vijay, was addressing the media at the press meet held in Kochi on Tuesday.

The director said he owed a lot to Jayam Ravi for his effort and tremendous hard work. "The hero is a tribal nomad and had to rely on expressions to communicate," he said.

He added that he enjoyed Vanamagan a lot. "Vanamagan is another movie which I sat back, relaxed and enjoyed, after Dheivathirumagal. Ravi just wonderfully enacted my character," says Vijay. Meanwhile, Jayam Ravi  quipped that he lost 15 kilos for the film and that the high-voltage action sequences injured him.

Vanamagan is an action thriller inspired from the lives of Jaravas of Andaman Islands. The movie, which was mostly shot in the jungles of Vietnam and China, features Sayyesha and Prakash Raj in important roles. 

The film also boasts of a great team, including cinematographer Tirru, stunt master Selva and music director Harris Jayaraj. Vanamagan will hit the screens on June 23.
