Jayaram plays a key role in Thuppakki, directed by AR Murugadoss. Grill him for juicy tidbits about his role in the fi lm, and he smiles saying, “Sorry, I am not allowed to talk about my role before the release.” Well, a Murugadoss fi lm would defi nitely have its share of surprises and this is but natural. Let’s keep guessing till Murugadoss’ Thuppakki is fi red.
About working with the ace director, Jayaram has much to say. “We had worked together earlier when he was an assistant director. He is a good technician and a close friend as well. It is that association that prompted him to ask me to play this role. He told me that though it is not a full-length character, it’s very important to the story. After hearing it out in detail, I agreed to do the role. Working with him has indeed been a great experience. His understanding of the craft of cinema is rare and fantastic.”
