Sakshi Aggarwal joins GV Prakash - Ezhil film
She plays a village girl in the film set in Tirunelveli
We had earlier reported that GV Prakash, who was last seen in Kuppathu Raja, has commenced work on a fantasy horror film with director Ezhil of Thulladha Manamum Thullum and Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran fame.
The latest on this project is that Sakshi Aggarwal, who was last seen in the Ajith-starrer Viswasam, will be playing a small but important role in the film. “I play the role of a village belle, who falls for the hero. Also, this is the first time I am playing a rural role. The cameraman UK Senthil Sir called me for an audition. I attended the audition wearing a half-saree, where I was required to deliver a few lines in Tirunelvi slang. The director and the ADs were very impressed with the way I grasped the slang, being a Nouth Indian. I come in the village portions of the film. Working with GV Prakash was fun, and a great learning experience for me. Though my character will be seen only for a brief time, it's a crucial one,” says Sakshi.
It is to be noted that Eesha Rabba of Awe fame and Nikesha Patel, who was last seen in the Arvind Swami-starrer Bhaskar Oru Rascal, have already been roped in as the female leads in this film. The latter's role as an IT professional is said to be the 'soul of the film'
The film, which is set in Tirunelveli, went on floors last week. It has cinematography by UK Senthil Kumar and music by Engeyum Eppodhum-fame C Sathya.
