Naren seems to be going great guns these days. In his next venture Pallikoodam, directed by Thangar Bachchan and produced by Vishwas Sundar, he plays a District Collector.
If the name Naren does not ring a bell in your memory then recollect the Vaala Meenu song from Chitthiram Pesudhadi.
Now you will remember the young man who starred in the movie as a henchman of a city goon. The movie had been big hit going by its star value and budget. In his very next film he was roped in by S.A.Chandrasekhar. Nenjirukkum Varai, though a different subject did not do well at the box office. Here too Naren had played a tough character. In spite of the film’s failure he did get noticed and very soon he got a call from Thangar Bachchan, thus he became part of Pallikoodam.
With Chithiram Pesudhadi and Nenjirukkumvarai projecting him as an action hero, Pallikoodam may be the right opportunity to cast-off that image. According to the actor, he has not done any homework for this role and has acted as per the instructions of Thangar Bachchan. The actor says that he expects to play different roles and so far a few of his dreams have come true.
Also note that this young actor’s career is hitting the right notes in the Malayalam film industry where his latest release Panthayakkozhi has been getting a pretty good response.
