STR's look from director Mani Ratnam's Chekka Chivantha Vaanam was revealed this evening. He plays a character named, 'Ethi' aka Ethiraj, in CCV, while in Nawab, the Telugu version of the film, his character is called Rudra.
Looking back at the previous posters, the other three lead actors, Arvind Swami, Arun Vijay, and Vijay Sethupathi have had same character names for both, the Tamil and Telugu versions. The case is different only with STR's character and we need to wait for the film to know if there is any reason behind this difference in the character's name.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that Ethiraj is another name of Lord Shiva, and it is the same case with Rudra too. So does this symbolize that STR's character could be similar to that of Lord Shiva, i.e, elements of anger? Stay tuned.
