It is known news that the actor Siddharth Lama happens to be the child artist from the film Yodha and currently he is doing the lead role for the film Edavapathy. This is directed by Lenin Rajendran.
And here is an interesting bit. It is heard that Lenin had Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi in mind but could not take him as he was too expensive. He even went to the National School of Drama searching for someone with north-east features.
Finally, it was Lenin's friend who suggested the name of Siddharth and that's how things fell into place. The shooting is currently progressing briskly at the resort side of Munnar.
