Actor Ashok Selvan ventured into Tamil cinema with the classic black comedy film Soodhu Kavvum which hit the screens under the direction of director Nalan Kumarasamy with actor Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role. The flick shattered box office records for an underdog project. The success of the drama brought him a lead role in Pizza 2: Villa. Unfortunately, the project tanked commercially. However, his next venture, the neo noir mystery thriller flick Thegidi filmed by P. Ramesh catapulted him as a bankable lead hero in Kollywood. Now, the actor who was last seen on screens in Hostel is gearing up for the release of his upcoming venture christened Nitham Oru Vaanam. The flick is scripted by debutant storyteller R. Karthik. Actresses Ritu Varma, Aparna Balamurali, and Sshivada will be seen as the female leads. Now, we have an interesting update on the drama.
