Last year, actor Jayam Ravi gave us strong proof of his abilities as a performer when his ambitious ‘Vanamagan’ opened to a decent response at the box office and received above-average reviews along the way. In the Vijay directorial, he essayed the role of a tribal man delivered a commendable act. Now, just a few months later, he is gearing up for the release of ‘Tik Tik Tik’. Touted to be India’s first space film, it features him in the role of a magician and has already created a buzz amongst fans. During a recent chat with a leading daily, Jayam Ravi opened up about playing onscreen dad to his real-life son Aarav in ‘Tik Tik Tik’ and said that he did well in most of the scenes.
“Shakti first asked me if I could play a dad in the film because he was worried that I would be worried about my image! When I told him I was game for it if the script demanded, he suggested Aarav’s name for the part. So, I asked Aarav if he was willing to shoot. And he was like, ‘Oh, pannalame’. He has come to shooting spots with me and has seen me work on the sets. So, he was quite cool about it. Also, I noticed that he has performed better in the scenes in which I wasn’t there. So, I figured I should leave him to follow his own style,” he added.
Well, we wish the father-son duo good luck and hope that ‘Tik Tik Tik’ does well at the box office. In case you did not know, ‘Tik Tik Tik’ has bbeen directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan and features Nivetha Pethuraj as the female lead.
