Shakthi Chidambaram, who is directing his next film Machaan after a year’s break, is nearly done with the talkie portions. The director, who is known for the humour quotient in his movies like Magha Nadigan and Englishkaran, seems to have added the right dose of it in Machaan as well. “It will be another movie with my trademark ingredients,” he says.
Actor Karunaas plays the lead role in the film, which also has Vivek in an important funny character. While the director is all praise for the latter for accepting to be part of the film, he says Karunaas is quick in grasping ideas. “I have worked with Sathyaraj sir before. After him, it is only Karunaas who okays all the shots in a single take,” he says.
Shakthi Chidambaram has appeared as Karunaas’ friend in a character called ‘Lollu’ Pandi in the film.
“It’s a small role and I play a drunkard,” he says. Only eight days of shooting remain to complete the project. Shakthi is hopeful that Machaan will be a successful laugh riot along the likes of Oru Kal Oru Kannadi and Kalakalappu.
