Naragasooran actor Arvind Swami: Karthick Naren has a Manoj Night Shyamalan-like thinking


I was not present here when Roja released. He taught me everything. He was very clear about it. Was it always the plan? He was the one who brought me here. What do you have to say about Mani Ratnam? Actually, Mani Ratnam brought me back with the film Kadal. He is the reason I am in the profession. He said, ‘You should play the character without any justification.’ The project is always important. I don’t mind playing a negative or a positive character. Any retirement plans? And he inspired me to make a comeback. Very interesting. I promised to go for higher studies after two years and that actually happened. I did my masters after Roja. You will have to talk to him.’ So, he came and convinced my father because my father wanted me to complete my higher studies first. I find their thought process and the choices they make very interesting. He didn’t want me to establish a career in the film industry. I want to be closer to nature, in a remote place, with my wife. After that, I continued (as an actor.)
What is next for you? He said, ‘We will start in two-three days.’ So, I told him, ‘I don’t know if my dad would allow me to come. 0
Comment(s) I always think about my contribution and about how I can take my character forward. Arvind Swami appeared on Famously Filmfare Tamil, which is currently streaming on MXPlayer. Is that true? I had told my parents that I will not make acting my profession and will go for higher studies. I am going to direct a film this year. For Roja, he had to convince your parents as well. You played an antagonist in Bogan and Thani Oruvan. I always wished to do a negative role; so when Mohan Raja narrated me the script, I found potential in that. Popular Photos

(The first time) I gave the audition and it was okay. New generation filmmakers have a new outlook and execution skills. Advertising

It’s good. I think he has got great potential. I don’t even mind short screen time. It is very heart-warming (to see that.) So, I thank them. He gave me the opportunity to develop the character. But after a year, I had to come back. I did not think of making a comeback. After that, I did films like Thani Oruvan and Bogan, which were well-appreciated. Karthick is a great director with a brilliant mind. Advertising

How was it working with a young director like Karthick Naren for Naragasooran? His screenplay sense is amazing and in my point of view, he has got a Manoj Night Shyamalan-like thinking. He brought you in the industry twice.
