Pasupathi Reveals Why Pa Ranjith's Sarpatta Parambarai Is Close To His Heart

Pasupathi is one of the best actors Tamil cinema has been gifted with. From Veyil to Asuran, every character that Pasupathi signs, leaves an impact on people long after the film gets over. Recently, he played the role of Rangan Vaathiyaar in director Pa Ranjith's Sarpatta Parambarai starring Arya. The film was released on Amazon Prime Video and received glowing reviews. Pasupathy has opened up about Sarappa and director Pa Ranjith. Sarpatta Parambarai is set in the 70s and spoke about boxing in North Madras in that time period.

 
Speaking about why the film is close to his heart, he said, "I was born and brought up in North Madras, which is where the story of SarpattaParambari was also set up. I grew up watching the kind of boxing you see in the film and I also had practiced a bit back then. This had a lasting impact on me that I wanted to work on a script about North Madras boxers myself. There have been many films about boxers, but there were no stories that were rooted. I had a sense of anguish and was looking for an answer to why such a film was not made. This is when Ranjith brought me the script of Sarpatta Parambarai and I told him that he beat me at it. When the script was narrated to me, so many aspects were close to heart. I felt like I had seen them in real life because I had lived during those times and with the kind of research that had gone into it, I just had to say yes."
