Jayam Ravi to appear in nine avatars in Comali
With music by Hip Hop Tamizha, the Vels Film International production is on the verge of completion
We had previously reported that Jayam Ravi is working on a film that co-stars Kajal Aggarwal. It's now known that this film, directed by newcomer Pradeep Ranganathan, has been titled Comali and will feature Jayam Ravi in nine different get-ups.
"I can't reveal the reason for spelling it so at this juncture. After his action-oriented roles in Thani Oruvan and Adanga Maru, Comali will feature Ravi in a role similar to the one he played in Santhosh Subramaniam. The film is basically a comedy entertainer, but it also has an important message and strong emotions," says director Pradeep. "The film will cover events that happen over a large period of time, so Ravi will be seen in nine different looks over different eras."
About the choice to cast Kajal, the director adds, "We wanted a huge star for the film and we zeroed in on Kajal because she hasn't worked with Ravi before. There's even a song in which we've built a temple for her." The film also has Samyukta Hedge of Kirik Party fame from the Kannada industry making her Tamil debut. "She has a good role in the film. There's also Yogi Babu, and he will be more than just a comedian. His role will be much spoken about," Pradeep tells us, adding that Comali also features KS Ravikumar and RJ Ananthi (known for being a part of the YouTube channel Parithabangal) in important roles.
