Director Selvaraghavan, who is currently working on the Suriya-starrer, ‘NGK’ or Nandha Gopala Krishna is all praise for its lead actor.
The ‘Mayakkam Enna’ and ‘Irandaam Ulagam’ director tweeted that if he ever wanted to work with the same actor again, it would be Suriya. Earlier the crew promised Surya fans that the film would hit the screens on Diwali but unfortunately they could not keep their word. Even Surya apologized his fans in many stages regarding the delay. Now the fans are waiting for any kind of update from the crew of NGK it seems.
No matter what genre he covers, the expectancy level of Selvaraghavan films are always sky high. The director can be labeled as one of the most ambitious directors in Tamil films – Irandam Ulagam is another product that is a result of his ambitiousness.
After writing the script for his father’s directorial venture Thulluvatho Ilamai (2002), Selvaraghavan went on to make a series of romantic drama films with Kadhal Kondein (2003) and 7G Rainbow Colony (2004) before also venturing into coming-of-age films Pudhupettai (2006).
He has also ventured into making science fiction and fantasy films, such as depicting a fantasy Chola kingdom in Aayirathil Oruvan (2010) and a parallel universe in Irandam Ulagam (2013). He has been critically acclaimed for his directorial skills.
