Prabhu is Singam

With less than 24 hours left for the release of ‘Raavanan’, some interesting details are doing rounds about the Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus, which has Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and a host of prominent actors in pivotal roles.
Sources close to Madras Talkies say veteran actor Prabhu is playing Vikram’s elder brother in this movie. “His character name is Singam and it is a very powerful one quite similar to the name,” they maintain.
Saying Prabhu would also tickle the funny bone of the audience with some interesting one liners (dialogues by Suhasini Mani Ratnam), sources add his character has been shaped up in a lively way by Mani.
On the role played by Karthik, another yesteryear hero, sources say he comes as a forest officer who assists Prithviraj in his mission to rescue Aishwarya Rai, who is abducted by Vikram. “On the whole, ‘Raavanan’ is going to be a racy thriller,” they conclude.
