Ashok Selvan hops from thrillers to romcom
The actor has been waiting for the right scripts to showcase his various talents. Now, a little birdie tells us that Ashok will be doing a romantic action flick to be directed by newbie Ashraf, a former associate director of AR Murugadoss. The film, we hear, is to be produced by S K Studios, which is currently also producing a Jai-Andrea starrer that has just gone on the floors. Ashok will be trying his hand at full-fledged romance and action, something which eluded him in his previous films. The rest of the cast and crew are still being finalised.
According to sources, Ashok has put all his summer vacation plans on hold and will be attending fighting and stunt classes with Pandian master. The flick will go on floors this summer.
Meanwhile, the actor, who has been flooded with scripts post Villa and Thegidi, will also be trying his hand at comedy. We hear that a major production house has signed up the actor for their next venture. The project is being kept under wraps, with the final list of cast and crew being prepared before the shoot set to start in the end of May. The film is touted to be a full-length comedy and will show Ashok Selvan in an entirely new light, veering him away from the serious author and detective roles he has done earlier.
The actor may also start work on a third flick — which he had agreed to do before Thegidi — later. With his recent release Thegidi shown on a major TV channel on May Day, we hear the actor is on cloud nine and is being flooded with calls from those who missed the movie at the theatres. With so much happening for Ashok, looks like yet another rising star is on the horizon.
