Popular actor Vikram Prabhu will soon be seen playing the role of a fire-fighter in his maiden production venture ‘Neruppuda’. And, needless to say, he is quite excited about the same. During a recent interaction with a leading daily, he opened up about the film and called it a tribute to fire fighters. Besides this, he also added that his character in ‘Neruppuda’ is a fan of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth.
“Yeah, it is true that I essay Rajini sir’s fan. But the core story is an action thriller and about five people, who work as firemen and their selfless journey in their profession with proper commercial elements in place. It is sort of a tribute to fire fighters and once you watch the film, the respect for them would rise multifold!” he added.
Interestingly, the film’s title is taken from the first line of a song from Rajinikanth’s ‘Kabali’. Explaining the reason of going in for the title, Vikram Prabhu said that the song in question came out when they were finalising the title. And, as it so happens, they felt that ‘Neruppuda’ did full justice to the film.
“When director Ashok Kumar narrated the story and we were in the process of finalising the title, Rajini sir’s Neruppuda number got released and received a huge response. Since our film is also on firefighters with the tagline ‘fire within you’ — we felt Neruppuda was perfect and finalised it! Sean Roldan was also roped in for music,” he added.
Well, we hope that ‘Neruppuda’ does well at the ticket window and helps Vikram Prabhu add a new dimension to his career.
On a related note, ‘Neruppuda’ will hit screens this week and also features Nikki Galrani in the lead.
