Nayanthara’s Imaikaa Nodigal marks the Tamil debut of popular Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Although last seen in AR Murugadoss’s Akira in a strong role, Anurag believes his role in the Nayanthara-starrer is not that of a typical baddie. He plays a character called Rudra. The film also stars Atharvaa.

Talking about his role, he said in a statement: “What pulled me towards acting in Imaikaa Nodigal is the role. Rudra is not your typical baddie. He doesn't just smoke, drink, order his men around and indulge in item numbers. He is menacing, scary, smart and cunning. This strange mixture that forms the role is what tempted me to take it up although I was tied up with my own projects back in Mumbai. When the audiences watch the movie in theatres, if I'm able to evoke the tiniest of fears in them, as Rudra, I'll consider my work done."

Having shot with the team for a few days, Anurag Kashyap has nice things to say about the team. "It's great to see youngsters take up the initiative and do interesting films like this. Films that demand a lot of experience and detailing. I'm surprised by director Ajay's command over the medium. DOP RD Rajasekhar is a friend of mine and I've had the joy of working with him in AR Murugadoss's Akira before this. His frames are a delight to watch. Additionally, the production has been impeccable. Every need of the artistes, technicians and the film is being taken care to the tee."
