As believed widely, Sasikumar is not playing a Karagattam artiste in the forthcoming film of National Award winning filmmaker Bala.
Instead, the ‘Subramanyapuram’ and ‘Bramman’ hero is playing the role of a Nadhaswaram exponent in the film, which is set to get a kickstart soon.
To get his act right, Sasikumar has learnt how to handle Nadhaswaram from professionals. He is now good at playing the wind instrument, sources say.
Maestro Ilayaraja is scoring music for this movie, which has Varalakshmi Sarathkumar playing a Karagattam artiste. Bala is expected to make an official announcement on this project soon.
