'Shooting for KKK was indeed a memorable experience'
The team of Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal along with the director of the film Desingh Periyasamy visited the office of DT Next and spoke to us about some interesting on-location experiences ahead of the film’s release on Friday
Dulquer Salmaan’s Tamil film Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (KKK) has been in the making for the last couple of years and will see the light of the day this week. The director along with the cast and crew of the film looked a happy bunch of people as they walked into our premises and was seen sharing jokes among themselves. After posing for our lensman, they settled down for a chat. Director Desingh looked relieved and said, “I’m glad that the film is all set to hit the screens. In fact, I had planned KKK as my third film due to the big budget. However, producer Anto Joseph was impressed with the script and asked me to go ahead with this. Dulquer was my obvious choice for the male lead and he was convinced with the story as well.” Desingh looked at Ritu for a moment and said, “I initially didn’t want Ritu as the film’s heroine.” A shocked Ritu Varma said, “What? You never told me about it. I’m sure you are cracking a joke.” Desingh replied, “I’m serious. I was on the lookout for another heroine but a lot of people suggested Ritu’s name and she fitted the bill for the character perfectly. She went on to do an impressive job in the film. She doesn’t play the stereotypical heroine that one would see in Tamil films.” Adding to Desingh’s point, Ritu said, “I play the character of Meera, who is quite contrasting to what DQ plays in the film. He is outgoing and a happy-go-lucky-chap whereas Meera isn’t. My role has been kept under wraps in the film’s promotional videos and all I can say is KKK will be a film that will be spoken about by the audience. Beyond romance, the story will be gripping and there will be a suspense that unfolds with every scene.”
The film also marks the acting debut of costume designer Niranjani Ahathian. “I’m also the costume designer of the film. The surprising thing is that I was able to convince Desingh as an actor. It was the costume designing part, where we both had a few discussions for the film to look colourful. It was a great fun working in the film,” she said. Desingh said that VJ Rakshan has made the work easy for people in charge of dubbing in the studio after working with him in KKK. “I play Dulquer’s friend in the film. This is my first movie and I’m getting to learn the art of dubbing. I must agree that for a particular scene, I had 26 retakes. Now that the dubbing studio has worked with me, they can handle any artiste with ease,” laughed Rakshan. Desingh also complimented Rakshan’s work as a VJ and said, “His timing is impeccable and to be an anchor of a comedy show isn’t easy. He even outperformed the judges, who are veteran comedians in the industry.” Ritu said that shooting for a film was fun on the sets, “We shot for the film in Goa and Desingh had to literally drag us for each and every shot. Apart from that we also shot in North East twice. Overall, it has been a memorable film for the entire unit,” she concluded.
