‘Kanaa‘ has created good buzz with its promos, especially with the cameo screen presence of Sivakarthikeyan in a new look. Well, there are certain assumptions doing rounds that Sivakarthikeyan has done a cameo, but filmmaker Arunraja Kamaraj surprises us with his deets on the role.
“Everyone seems to be brimmed up with their own beliefs that Sivakarthikeyan is doing a cameo. But the fact is that he will be seen in a much more prominent role in this film. Sivakarthikeyan always believes in doing justice to anything he is involved. Although he has produced this film and even made my ‘Kanaa‘ of becoming a filmmaker come true, he had no intentions of appearing in this film for the sake of it. Precisely, the script had a substantial character, which actually keeps pushing the story ahead. However, even while discussing it, Siva didn’t have any idea of essaying it. In fact, he himself was considered many other familiar actors to perform this role, but I was finally able to convince him that he would give a perfect touch to it. I am sure Sivakarthikeyan’s screen presence will be liked by all in Kanaa,” says director Arunraja Kamaraj.
Scheduled for worldwide release on December 21, Kanna is produced by Sivakarthikeyan Productions and is co-produced by Kalai Arasu. Apart from Sathyaraj, Aishwarya Rajesh and Sivakarthikeyan, others in the star-cast include Darshan, Ilavarasu, Ramadoss, Rama, Savari Muthu, Antony Bhagyaraj and many other newcomers and cricket players from all over India. An interesting fact is the film also stars cricket players from Australia.
