In the announcement poster, Raghava Lawrence is seen furious. When asked Kathiresan if Rudhran has a societal message, he replied, “The film is certainly a commercial entertainer with a message. You would know if it is towards the society or a tale of personal revenge,” the director-producer told us.
Sarathkumar plays the baddie opposite Lawrence. “He is one of the best actors we have in the industry and easily gets into the skin of any character so well. His role will be something similar to that of Arjun in Irumbuthirai. Only a strong antagonist can make the protagonist role look better,” Kathiresan remarked.
