About Family Star

Parasuram Petla’s Family Star releases in theatres on April 5 and stars Vijay and Mrunal Thakur in the lead roles. The film is the director’s second with the actor after the 2018 hit film Geetha Govindam, which also starred Rashmika Mandanna. Incidentally, Vijay’s character in the film is also called Govardhan.

Talking about deriving inspiration from his father for the role with the press, Vijay said, “When Bujji (Parasuram) narrated the script to me, I could relate to it. I could see my father in the lead character, he’s the backbone of our family. I requested them to let me name the lead character after him. I also wanted my moustache to look like his, to pay him homage. However, this character is nothing like me or my father.”
