Jiiva is fit!
Jiiva is on the regular workout for his next film “Nanban” directed by Shankar. There are a few directors who request their lead actors to go under vigorous workout as it is required for their character. So, Jiiva walks 5km a day without taking a break! The actor, who is currently acting in “Vandhan Vendran”, walks from the sets of that film to the hotel he is staying at.
Jiiva has completed his first schedule of “Nanban” in Ooty and is now busy shooting “Vandhan Vendran” and “Rowthiram.” His film “Singam Puli” – in which he plays a dual role – is ready for release.
More on Rana
Super Star Rajinikanth’s next film Rana is directed by K.S.Ravikumar. The director already gave the star a hit with Padayappa. It is heard that Rajini will be playing THREE roles in this forthcoming film, where each character is of a different age. The youngest character will be paired with Bollywood Bombshell Deepika Padukone.
