Having made announcements that Jai turns superhero with ‘Breaking News’, the next absolute curious thing was to know about who’s he going to battle with. With the shoot of this film going on full swing, the team has now officially confirmed that Rahul Dev (Ajith Kumar starrer Vedalam fame)and Dev Gill (Magadheera and Vijay’s Sura fame) will be playing the baddies.
Of course, the battlegrounds get fierce and more intense only when a superhero has equally powerful super villains to combat with. As soon as we got Jai onboard, our next quest was to bring in actors, who would look unassailable over the battle. Having gone through lots of considerations, we zeroed in Rahul Dev and Dev Gill, who have always engrained the masses with their stunning physiques and action sequences. Since, the script demanded such actors, who could deliver high volatile performances, we instantly felt that these two would do complete justice to the film. Moreover, they share a whole of similarities when it comes to being perfectionists and they are one among the rarest actors to have universal appeal on Pan-Indian levels despite playing baddies,” says film Director Andrew Pandian, who has worked as VFX supervisor for more than 90 films including the magnum opuses like Anniyan and Mudhalvan.
Adding more on Dev Gill and Rahul Dev, Andrew Pandian says, “Both of them will be seen playing brothers and Rahul Dev is a powerful International don. The story is about how an ordinary man gets influenced by superpowers to combat for the well being of his people.”
With the film promising to offer wholesome visual treat with around 450 CG technicians across the world under the supervision of V Dinesh Kumar working on the project, the director opines that it’s not just about the visual grandeur, but ‘Breaking News’ will have the appropriate dose of emotions and love too.”
Featuring Jai and Bhanu Sree in lead roles, Breaking News is produced by Nagercoil based Thirukadal Udhayam with Johnny Lal handling cinematography and Anthony on editing. Art by Mahesh, Choreography by Radhika, Music by Vishal Peter.
