    Acclaimed director Selvaraghavan, who is also the brother of actor Dhanush, has always been vocal about his views on films and artists. The Aayirathil Oruvan-fame director recently took to his social media pages to heap praise on Kollywood’s budding actors Manikandan and Kavin.

An excellent thing for Tamil cinema.” The director seems to have been impressed by the young actors' performances in the latest films, Lover, starring Manikandan, and Kavin’s latest outing Star. Both films have received rave reviews from critics and audiences, alike.
