Director cum actor Sasi Kumar is all set to play the lead role in Director Bala's next. The actor has reportedly undergone a drastic transformation for the role that nobody in the public could actually recognize Sasi Kumar.
Times of India reported that "Yes, the actor, who has been keeping his look for the film a secret, recently chose to go out in public and have a snack after a visit to Bala's office. Sasi, who plays a Karagattam artist in the film, sports a different look for the film. He has shaved off his beard and sports a pencil moustache. He has curly hair and his look resembles the legendary comedian Chandrababu."
"Sasi took a stroll in T Nagar and Pondy Bazaar and had a snack and nobody was able to spot him. His appearance has changed so much that even the staff of a popular star hotel here were unable to recognize him and refused him permission initially when he attempted to enter it,"
According to reports Sasi Kumar plays a Nadaswaram expert while the female lead Varalakshmi plays a Karagattam artist.
