Actor Sidharth who is basking in glory of delivering a hat trick of hits in Tamil with Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Eppadi, Udhayam NH4 and Theeya Vela Seyyanum Kumaru is currently acting in Kaviyathalaivan a period film directed by Vasanthabalan. This is the first period film for Sidharth in Tamil.
When a leading Newspaper asked on how he zeroed in on Sidharth for the lead role of KT, the Angaadi Theru director said, "Many think that my film is the adaptation of real life love between theatre doyens S.G.Kittappa and K.B.Sundarambal but that is not true. However when I completed the script of Kaviyathalaivan, Kittappas's face came to my mind when I thought of the protagonist. I find a striking resemblance between Kittappa and Sidharth. I was happier to know that Sidharth has theatre background and fixed him for the role".
This is how Sidharth became the part of an ambitious project that aspires to shed light on the theatre groups that were rampant in 1920's and 1903's.
Vedhika plays Sidharth's love interest in the film while Prithviraj plays a powerful character as the brother like friend to Sidharth. Anaika, the heroine of Ramgopal Varma's Satya 2 debuts in Tamil with this film as another heroine.
The covetable technical crew includes A.R.Rahman as the composer, Nirav Shah as the cinematographer and prolific writer Jeyamohan has written the dialogues.
