Debutant director Pradeep Krishnamurthy, who is awaiting the release of upcoming Tamil thriller Saithan, says composer-turned-actor Vijay Antony’s performance in the film stunned him.

“Every great story requires a great actor who can justify it. Being an actor doesn’t mean merely photocopying the expressions and dialogues given in the script, rather a life has to be given to that role. In that case, I was really stunned by the performance Vijay Antony sir in the demonic role,” Pradeep said in a statement.

Assuring that the film is packed with several edge-of-the-seat moments, the director said that the film’s story also has more than just the demonic side of its protagonist.

Also starring Arundhati Nair, Charu Haasan and Meera Krishnan, the project is produced by Vijay Antony’s home banner.
