How Vikram Prabhu turned Bomman in Kumki?

Thanks to director Prabhu Solomon’s Kumki, Vikram Prabhu, grandson of thespian Sivaji Ganesan makes his cut in Tamil cinema.

Though his grand father (Sivaji) and father (Prabhu) were big stars, Vikram Prabhu’s entry to cinema was not easy. Guess how he managed to get his act in Kumki?

Says Prabhu Solomon, the director of the film, ‘I wanted to find the right man to play ‘Bomman’ in the movie and was looking for some one who was at least 6 feet tall because the elephant was quite huge.’

‘I came to know from a friend that Prabhu’s son Vikram was looking for an ideal launch and that’s how things moved’.

Prabhu Solomon admitted that he was a little apprehensive before meeting Vikram Prabhu but once he saw he decided he was the man for Bomman.
