Actor Thangavelus grandson turns hero

Ashwin Kumar, grandson of late legendary actors, comedian Thangavelu and Kaka Radhakrishnan who was hitherto playing small insignificant roles in Ktown has been elevated to a hero with the movie ‘Saranalayam’.

Directed by Jagganathan, the movie has debutant Sripriyanka as the female lead. Its very intense subject with romance interlaced. Ashwin has played his part so well that it would give him the necessary break, says the director.

Apart from penning the story, screenplay and wielding the megaphone, Jagan has also taken the onus of music.
