“Kannum Kannum Kollayadithaal” of Dulquer Salmaan is probably the last film most of us would have watched in theatres before lockdown. The film which was written and directed by Desingh Periyasamy, took 5 years since Pooja to complete and released on 28th of February, 2020 only to impress both audience and the critics. It is one of the very few films that received 100% of positive review from popular Tamil movie reviewer Blue Satta Maaran. Apart from Dulquer, the romantic heist comedy stars Ritu Varma, Rakshan and Niranjani Ahathian in prominent roles.
The film is based on the four leading characters trying to pull of a heist that is next to impossible by using their unique skill of conning people. Director Gautham menon appeared as a police officer and left the audience in splits. Rakshan, making his debut to silver screen, got his face recognized to the mainstream audience. “Pelli Chupulu” fame Ritu Varma’s versatile acting in the film is going to grab her a number of opportunities from the top heroes of Tamil film industry in coming days for sure. Now, an interesting fact about Niranjani Ahathian who played the role of Rakshan’s pair in the film got surfaced in internet. Her entry in the film must have raised the eyebrows of many youngsters and many of us would have got that feeling of witnessing their somewhere else before.
In the film Niranjani played a role of a con artist and as a love interest of Rakshan. Well, apparently she is a costume designer who worked in some of the high profile films such as “Kaaviya Thalaivan”, “Kabali”, “Kathakkali” etc but recently netizens came to know that she is a younger sister of actress Vijayalakshmi whom we got to know about through Chennai 28, Venkat Prabhu’s debut directorial. Vijayalakshmi, Karthika, Niranjani were born to legendary filmmaker Ahathian who is known for making blockbuster film of actor Ajith Kumar “Kaadhal Kottai” which was released in the year 1996. The film is one of the biggest break for actor Ajith kumar during the initial stage of his acting career.
Niranjani is also known for fashion stylist and her online boutique named as “Manjal” is functioning exclusively for women. She received Vijay award for working in Kaaviya Thalaivan, a period drama as a costume designer. Check out few posts of the trio :
