    My outlook has changed: Jeyam Ravi

    Wednesday, March 09, 2005
    Jeyam Ravi has emerged as the front runner among young heroes as his Jeyam and M Kumaran S/O Mahalakshmi are considered hits.

    A frank and an out-spoken Ravi, says, “People has accepted me as hero. I want to cement my place here and do much more worthy films”.

    Ravi is currently busy with Mazhai and Dass and has in hand a couple of offers from big banners and creamy producers.

    “Though I took more time for my second movie M Kumaran after my debut venture Jeyam, the success it tasted has emboldened me to try new things in the industry, Ravi says.

    A quick chat with Ravi:

    How do you feel about the success of Jeyam and M Kumaran?

    I was confident that my Jeyam would do well. My brother director Raja and my father editor Mohan need to be commended for the success. However, I took more time for my second venture, since I wanted it to be a perfect movie. I listened to lot of scripts and eventually happened M Kumaran. Many criticized me for taking a big gap. However the success of M Kumaran has silenced them. Two back to back hits have changed my entire attitude towards cinema.

    How do you choose stories?

    I will listen to the story and script first. Then my father Mohan, a veteran in the industry, would also listen to the story. If time permits, I will get the suggestions of my brother Raja. However, the final decision would be from my dad. If I don't like a script and even though they offer me millions to act in the movie, I would say a firm 'no'.

    Your future aspirations?

    An actor should do any role - be it romance, action, sentiment or humour. Once I establish a place for myself in the industry, I would do a full-length action-packed movie like Vijay or Vikram. Until then, I will continue to perform a mixture of action, sentiment and love roles.

    How's your Mazhai progressing?

    The title of the movie itself is like a poem. The movie is also the same. It has romance and good music and has come out good. Besides, Mazhai (rain) itself plays an important role in the movie. Certainly, my Mazhai would rain more fortunes on me.

    On Rascal being changed to Dass?

    Yes indeed. The entire shooting has been completed. I play a gutsy youth who does anything with courage. He emerges triumphant from any stiff challenge. A daring role that I liked very much. The title change has been done with an intention not to hurt anybody's sentiments.
