Dhruv Vikram will be playing the role of a kabaddi player in Pariyerum Perumal director Mari Selvaraj’s new film. The sports drama will be produced by Pa Ranjith. Dhruv will be seen starring in this true life story of a sports man who climbed his way from the rural hinterland of Tamil Nadu to finally winning the nation’s highest sports honour and winning gold for his country at the Asian Games.
In a press note, Mari Selvaraj states, “The film is based on the life story of a sportsperson and this is going to showcase their lives in a raw and lively manner which has not been shown in Tamil cinema before. We have requested Dhruv Vikram to start training for this intense sports drama.” Dhruv, in a press release, says, “One of the things I learned from being my father’s son is that in the pursuit of your dream, dedication to your craft is above all else… I’m blessed to join hands with two people who embody this very trait that my father taught me to cherish — my director Mari Selvaraj sir, a man who stands apart solely”.
