Cheran, Gopika, Sneha

Cheran is a director who has made socially relevant middle-of-the-road films like Bharathi Kannamma, Porkalam and Desiyageetham. He turned hero with Thangar Bachchan’s Solla Marantha Kathai in which his performance was appreciated.
And now Cheran is donning one more role as that of a producer with Autograph, where he is not only directing but also playing the lead role. In the film he goes down the memory lane and tells the story of a boy turning into a man and his progression from youth to his old age and experiences in life.

“During our school and college days we collect autographs from our friends and people dear to us. It later brings nostalgic memories and my film is like an autograph of memories” says Cheran about the film. To play the lead role Cheran has approached stars like Vikram and Prabhu Deva but finally he decided to go in for a “new look” by shedding weight and sporting a crew cut hairstyle to look younger.

Gopika, a girl from Kerala plays heroine and Sneha plays a cameo. The music is by Bharadwaj and lyrics are by PA Vijayan. A major part of the film was shot in Kerala and the cast also has Five Star Krishna and Rajesh plus a lot of artists from Malayalam. Vijay Milton is the cinematographer.
