Cook with Comali-fame Ashwin to star in Enna Solla Pogirai
The film derives its title from the famous AR Rahman composition from Kandukondain Kondukondain
Actor Ashwin Kumar, who rose to fame with the TV show Cook with Comali is set to star as the lead in the upcoming Tamil film, Enna Solla Pogirai. The film will be directed by erstwhile ad filmmaker, Hariharan A, who has also directed the web series Ctrl Alt Del.
Speaking of the film, Hariharan says, “It’s a feel-good romantic-comedy on the lines of Minsara Kanavu and Unnale Unnale. The film will also feature Cook with Comali-fame Pugazh in a prominent role. As the story needs an urban setting, we are planning to shoot it entirely in Chennai, starting from July 19.”
Hariharan adds that the film will follow a triangle love story with two female leads and the team is currently in the process of finalising the primary cast. The filmmaker attributes the title to the iconic song from Kandukondain Kondukondain. “It was also apt for the subject of the film, and since it was my favourite song, we went with the title.”
Bankrolled by R Ravindran of Trident Arts, the film will have cinematography by Richard M Nathan, while Vivek-Merwin are set to compose the music. Meanwhile, Ashwin’s other acting credits include Adithya Varma, Indha Nilai Maarum, and Ok Kanmani.
