From villain to hero

Remember Daniel Balaji. He made a place for himself being part of films like Polladhavan and Vettaiyadu Vilayadu. He plays a different role in Gnana Kirukkan. It is directed by Ilayadevan. He says, ‘It is a mind-blowing subject and I essay the title role. I have a new look in the entire movie and am attired in white khadi dhoti and shirt.’
‘Gnana Kirukkan is one who treats all human beings equally irrespective of their caste, creed, and financial status. He is a selfless man who lives for others. I am really kicked up about the project.’ Actress Meenals sister Sendhi plays the heroine. Thambi Ramaiah is also in the cast. It is shot in and around Kumbakonam.
