If you look back at Vikram filmography, with films like Anniyan in 2005 and I in 2015 and now Iru Mugan, he plays characters that have a sense of duality. When asked why he has such preferences with roles, he says, “Such characters interest me a lot and I think I am more of an Iru Mugan in real life too. I am Kenny at home and Vikram on sets (grins). Also, I love experimenting with powerful, contrasting, layered and varied roles.”
Vikram also revealed how he decided to do Iru Mugan with Anand Shankar who is barely a film old. “I saw his first film Arima Nambi (2014) and couldn’t believe that was his debut project. I asked Anand if he could work on another story for me. A month later, he brought me a script. He’s an amazing storyteller. Besides the subject, it was the portrayal of characters that made me accept the project. It was quite unconventional and challenging. I gave my 300% and pushed myself to the maximum as an actor and as an individual. Every day was an experience for me,”exudes Vikram.
