Udhayanidhi is playing Fahad Faasil’s role in the Tamil remake of Nimir. Veteran director Priyadarshan has remade the Malayalam hit Maheshnite Prathikaaram as Nimir.
Udhay says that his wife appreciated him for Nimir, he says “One day, I got a call from Priyadarshan sir asking me to act in his direction. In fact, he hadn’t watched any of my previous movies, which in one way I would say is good. When we are performing along with renowned actors, we remain awestricken. Such was an immense experience working Mahendran sir.
I was yet more fascinated to hear him say that he got many opportunities to act after ‘Theri’, which he refused. But he gave a nod to ‘Nimir’ only for the sake of Priyadarshan sir. I am really lucky to have shared the screen space with him. After watching the film in preview, my wife appreciated me saying that I have done a better job than Manithan, but only halfway to Fahadh Faasil’s performance.
I am so much happy that she approved me of my performance. Everyone who saw ‘Nimir’ has acknowledged it as Priyadarshan sir’s best till the date. We are planning to release the film on January 26”.
