Angadi Theru fame Mahesh plays the lead in Karuppu Aadu. He dons the role of a roadside ice-cream vendor in the movie directed by Vijay Mohan.
Speaking about the movie, Vijay says, “The film is inspired from real life person near Madurai and the shocking incident that happened to him which altered his life altogether. I am addressing an important message in it. Mahesh, who has shed several kilos to look his part, has lived in the character. Akshitha of Nambargal Narpani Mandram plays his pair in a rural role.”
Set in villages in and around Madurai, the screenplay of the film is completely different, says Vijay. Marimuthu, Dindugal Dhana, Paul Raj and Madhuraj play supporting roles.
