Check Out How Devaraj Was Convinced To play An 80 Year Old In Prakash Jayram’s 'Tarak'
Director Prakash Jayram is busy gearing up for the release of his upcoming action drama film 'Tarak'. The film is challenging for star actor Darshan as he has been paired with two lovely ladies, Shanvi Srivastava and Sruthi Hariharan to romance him in the flick. 'Tarak' is about the relationship between a grandfather and grandson which will be portrayed by actor Devaraj and Darshan respectively.
The director said, “Initially, Devaraj sir was sceptical about playing a character far beyond his years, but the role intrigued him and he agreed to do a look test before signing up. As a theatre actor, Devaraj sir has played older characters earlier and that is one of the reasons he was eventually open to the idea”. Moreover, Darshan will have a different look in the flick as he is someone who has been born and brought up abroad, according to the plot of the film.
Further, he revealed, “His team worked on the look, including the prosthetics, and once he saw that he could convincingly pull it off, Devaraj sir agreed to be a part of the film". However, the director also said that it took him a little while to convince the veteran actor for stepping up for the role, where he will portray an 80-year-old. Meanwhile, the film is set to release on September 29.
