The first teaser of Imaikka Nodigal was released recently, and has turned into the talk of the tinsel town for one particular reason. Towards the end of the teaser, Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap makes a fleeting appearance which has gone viral on the internet. It got so much attention from movies buffs that they made it trend on social networking sites with the hash tag 'AnuraginKtown.â€™
Incidentally, this is not the first time Anurag is donning the greasepaint; he was seen playing a police officer in the AR Murugadoss directorial Akira apart from films like Black Friday, Dev D and No Smoking. However, Imaikka Nodigal will mark his debut in Kollywood.
According to sources, Anurag is playing the role of a serial killer, Rudra in the movie. The statement released by Anurag Kashyap in this regard read, â€śWhat pulled me towards acting in Imaikkaa Nodigal is the role. Rudra is not your typical baddie. He doesnâ€™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 theatre, if Iâ€™m able to evoke the tiniest of fears in them, as Rudra, Iâ€™ll consider my work done.â€ť
Imaikka Nodigal is directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu of Demonte Colony fame. He had worked with ace director AR Murugadoss as his assistant before going on to direct films on his own. The film stars Nayanthara in an important role with Atharvaa and Raashi Khanna also included in the star cast. This neo noir crime thriller film has music composed by Hip Hop Thamizha with RD Rajasekhar cranking the camera and Bhuvan Srinivasan editing it.
