Director Selvah who began his career by directing TV serials, made his Kollywood entry though Thalaivasal. Selvah enjoys the privilege of directing DMK leader MK Stalin, in a serial called Surya. In fact Ajith made his onscreen debut in Selvah’s film Amaravathi, way back in 1993. Selvah had also given an opportunity for Sathyaraj’s son Sibiraj, who made his debut through his film Student No 1. The director has till date made films like Karna, Sishya, Pooveli, Manikanda, Naan Avan Illai and Guru Namma Aalu, to name a few.
Selvah has now decided to go back to the small screen, the place where he originally came from. It is almost 25 years since he came to films. He is going to be directing a new serial called Run. When we spoke to the director, he said, “Run will be an edge of the seat thriller with several unpredictable twists and turns, shot stylishly. It will not be like the normal tearjerkers you see on TV these days.” Actor Krishna and Saranya of Nenjam Marappadhillai serial fame will play the lead pair.
Director Selvah is also working with Arvind Swami in the movie Vanangamudi but it looks like it will take a while for this film to release. In Vanangamudi, Arvind Swami will be seen as a straight forward cop and the film talks about the different stages of his life. It has four heroines namely Simran, Ritika Singh, Chandhini and Nandhita Swetha and all of them play powerful roles.
