‘Kumki’ Vikram Prabhu - perfect fit for the role

Even as ‘Kumki’ produced by Thirrupathi Brothers N Lingusami and Subash Chandra Bose and Studio Green gets ready to hit the screens next week, the cast and crew of ‘Kumki’ met the media in Chennai on Friday to announce the release date and shared some interesting details.

The filmmaker said that he selected Vikram Prabhu for the lead role, not because he is the grandson of thespian Sivaji Ganesan or son of Prabhu. Speaking on the occasion, director Prabhu Solomon said “Vikram was the perfect fit for the role which I had in my mind. Also, he equipped himself fully well for the character. He will rock after Kumki’s release.”

The entire cast and crew of the film including lead pair Vikram Prabhu, Lakshmi Menon, Thambi Ramaiah, Joe Malluri, Ashwin, music director D Imman, lyricist Yugabharathi, cinematographer Sukumar, art director Vairabalan, producer N Lingusami and Studio Green’s KE Gnanavelraja were present.

The director said that the film is not just about an elephant and its caretaker. “There is a beautiful love story and it will be the surprise package,” he added.

Kumki is all set to be released on Dec 14th along with Gautham Menon’s ‘Neethaane En Ponvasantham’ starring Jiiva and Samantha.
