Director Karthik Subbaraj is all geared up for the release of Jigarthanda. Starring Siddharth and lakshmi menon in the lead role, the movie releases on 1 August. Says the director, ‘ We grew up watching several movies on gangsters. Obviously I was inspired to do one on them. But unlike others, Jigarthanda will explore their minds.
‘Though Siddharth has a chocolate boy image in Tamil cinema, I decided that he should do the lead in Jigarthanda after watching Rang De Basanti. He is a versatile actor. He has pulled it off well in my film’
The movie has Bobby Simha playing the baddie and music is by Santosh Narayanan.
