R Madhavan’s return to movies after a lengthy break had been very publicized and followed by his fans everywhere, and now that day is finally upon us.
The actor’s upcoming Tamil flick, Irudhi Chutru, launched a couple of days back on July 14th, when the Pooja of the movie was held. The entire cast and crew of the movie attended the function including Madhavan.
The shooting is set to launch on July 21st in Chennai, if things go as planned and Madhavan’s parts in the flick will be among the first to be shot. The director of this film is Sudha K Prasad of Drohi fame, and Sashikanth of YNot Studios will be the man producing it. Santhosh Narayanan will score the tunes for this one.
Now about the story..
Apparently, the plot of the movie revolves around women’s boxing. Madhavan plays a boxing coach and the purpose of the movie, or at least one of its main intents, is to raise awareness about the female division of this sport in our nation.
This is exemplified in the movie as many real life female boxers will be tackling some onscreen roles for it.
Madhavan has gone through an intense physical transformation to get in to character for this film. Gone is the boy next door charming quality he carried through in many of his movies and here comes the new persona of the rough and tough, no nonsense weathered sportsman.
He will be seen sporting a long haired, thick bearded look and a much more buffed up, muscular physique in the movie.
So it definitely feels like Irudhi Chutru is one to look forward to..
