Aadhi Sai Kumar, son of popular actor Sai Kumar, will make his debut in Tamil cinema with a film titled Kaatteri. Directed by Deekay, who shot to fame with Yaamirukka Bayamey, Kaatteri will also feature Bigg Boss super star Oviya in one of the lead roles. Deekay also says that Kaatteri will feature four actresses and Oviya will play the lead role. Speaking to a leading daily, director Deekay throws light on why he chose Aadhi for the lead role and what the film will be all out.
“Aadi has acted in a few Telugu films. In fact, he is doing the Telugu remake of Yaamirukka Bayamey. He is handsome and suits the role of my hero,” a report in TOI quoted director Deekay. “The film goes back and forth between the past and present, and this story takes place in the modern times and in the 1960s,” Deekay added further.
Speaking about the leading ladies of Kaatteri, Deekay said, “We are currently in the pre-production stage and it will take us two months to go on floors. We will be selecting the other female leads in the coming days.”
Talking about what Kaatteri would be about, Deekay says, “This is not a horror film, though there is a horror element in it. It is an adventure film that begins in the city and moves to a fantasy version of a village. We have all heard grandma’s stories, which will always have a mix of everything — scares, thrills and also excitement, as they will mostly be adventure stories. This is one such film.”
The film was launched today officially in Chennai and had the lead actor Aadhi in attendance. Here are few photos from the event:
