In a first of its kind role in Tamil cinema, Krishna, the 'Alibaba' and 'Kattradhu Kalavu' hero, is playing a man who rescues bodies of those committed suicide by jumping from a mountain, in 'Kazhugu', his forthcoming film.
"I was so thrilled when director Sathya Siva narrated the script to me. I realized that it is the character of a lifetime. I immediately rushed to Kodaikanal to learn the trade from those who are involved in it," he says.
Recalling it as a risky operation, Krishna says, "It is not an easy thing to recover dead bodies. Because they would be scattered into pieces as those committing suicide would jump from a great height. Those doing this need great appreciation."
Bindu Madhavi from Tollywood is playing the heroine, while Karunas and Thambi Ramaiah play pivotal characters in 'Kazhugu'. "The film is about a man who protects his love like an eagle. No one can escape from his eyes," concludes Krishna.
