With the posters creating so much excitement around the film, this sure will be the most anticipated for in 2018. Nani had said recently that when he first heard the script, he was very excited. “Prashanth narrated the story to me and I was thrilled after the narration. I asked him about producers of the film and he said he hasn’t found on yet, but will manage it somehow. That’s when I realised that this story needs a good platform and decided to produce it myself, and told Prashanth the same,” Nani said in a video message he posted on his social networking page. With such stellar star cast, AWE is certainly the most anticipated for film in South Indian cinema in 2018. Nani himself is busy with his acting commitments and a release lined up in couple of weeks, MCA, manages to take time out for production and yet balances everything in a fantastic way. Nani’s MCA is slated to be released on December 21st, 2017.
Regina Cassandra, besides ‘AWE’, has few other films in her kitty which includes Venkat Prabhu directorial ‘Party’. The teaser of the film was released by the makers a day ago and the film promises to be laugh riot. ‘Party’ stars Jayaram, Jai, Premgi Amaren, Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan, Regina Casandra, Sanchita Shetty, Nivetha Pethuraj, Nasser and Chandran among others. Taking a hilarious dig at the demonetisation, ‘Party’ seems to be a fun-filled story with huge humour quotient with a trademark Venkat Prabhu style. Starring top actors like Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan, Jayaram and Nasser in important roles, ‘Party’ seems to be a laugh riot and Tamil movie-buffs would be waiting for the release of the film.
Regina will also be seen playing the female lead role in ‘Nenjam Marappathillai’ which is being directed by ace filmmaker Selvaraghavan. The film is touted to a thriller but Regina Cassandra says it not a thriller and is a dark movie. Produced by Gautham Menon jointly with P. Madan, the release of the film has been rescheduled many a times till now but the actress doesn’t seem to have been affected by that. “The wait for Nenjam Marappathillai doesnt frustrate me. The funny part is that every time a new date is announced I feel as excited as I did when the film was supposed to release,” says Regina Cassandra in an interview to a news agency.
Talking about director Selvaraghavan, Regina Cassandra says that she has learnt a lot of things from him. “I wont say Selva is a demanding director, but a perfectionist. He knows exactly what he wants. A lot of people actually told me that its going to be difficult working with him. But I never kept that in my mind, and I am glad that I didnt,” adds Regina.
Regina also says that Nenjam Marappathillai is a dark movie and not a typical horror thriller. “Its the one film that I am still anxious about and looking forward to. I wont call it as a horror or thriller; its a dark movie, first of its kind,” opines Regina. Regina also opens up about what drives her to choose the scripts and the characters in them. “I have always given a lot of thought to the character and script, thats why I was doing only a few films. From the few commercial offers I got in Tamil, I picked and waited to see how it goes,” added Regina.
