Rewind to mark Thej’s Kannada debut
Thej will also make his directorial debut in Kannada with the bilingual (Kannada-Tamil) family thriller.
Even though Thej's film career began in Tamil cinema, the actor calls himself a true blue Bengalurean. He has so far worked in Tamil films like Konjam Veyil Konjam Mazhai, Kadhalukuu Maranaam illai, Gaantham and Mozhivathu Yathaniil. After nine years, Thej is now set to make his debut in a Kannada film, titled Rewind. Thej will also make his directorial debut in Kannada with the bilingual (Kannada-Tamil) family thriller.
“We have planned a schedule in Bengaluru and Singapore. We are also planning to shoot the thriller at exotic locations in Germany and Lithuania, among other places.”
The film will have two heroines, and the makers have signed up Chandana as one of the female leads. Rewind will also feature Sampath Kumar in a prominent role, along with Sundar Raj, Mandya Ravi and Anand. “Discussions are going on between the team and a famous Chinese actor will play the role of a vicious villain,” says Thej.
Rewind’s music will be composed by Sabesh Solomon. He was previously associated with popular music director, Harris Jayraj. Cinematographer Prem of Ala Modalaindi fame will be cranking the camera for Rewind.
