Rajinikanth starrer Jailer which went on to become one of the biggest hits of Tamil Cinema, this year, was not only known for its star-studded cameos but also one of the most appreciated performances of the megastar. While the film received a lot of love, filmmaker Nelson Dilipkumar faced quite a bit of criticism when he decided to show the Tamil superstar in an aged avatar where he is seen as not just the father but also as a grandfather in the movie.Jailer filmmaker Nelson Dilipkumar reveals how people discouraged him from showcasing Rajinikanth in an aged role
In an interview with Film Companion, Nelson Dilipkumar was seen discussing the making of Jailer wherein he revealed that people were trying to convince him to do away with Rajinikanth in an aged role. “This is the first time I made him play his age, that was the major doubt in me because people told me, ‘Don’t make him play his age. Let him do whatever he has done already. Don’t grey his hair.’ But I was like, even if it has to fail, let it be with my gut, I will take the blame. I didn’t want someone to confuse me,” the filmmaker told the portal.
Interestingly, Jailer went on to become one of the highest grossing films of the year. In the same interaction, he was also seen discussing the sequence where the dead body falls in the midst of the dining table. “I thought about staging that scene for a month. I wanted Rajini sir to be cool in that whole film. Rather than him fighting, whatever happens around him should be more interesting and never seen before in his films. I myself wrote the whole stunt and scripted the whole scene,” he added.
Jailer also stars Ramya Krishnan, Vinayakan, Vasanth Ravi, Tamannaah Bhatia, Mirnaa Menon, Yogi Babu, among others in key roles. The film released on August 10.
