Kavin in a still from ‘Lift’  

Kavin has come a long way since he appeared on television shows like Kana Kaanum Kaalangal and Saravanan Meenatchi. The actor epitomises the challenging journey of several aspirants in Tamil Nadu who long to make it from TV to the big-screen; his ups and downs are well-documented, reaching full circle with his arc on the third season of Bigg Boss Tamil.

However, life since the reality show drastically changed for Kavin, whose quick wit and affable personality endeared him to audiences. Though he made his debut as a lead star in Natpuna Ennanu Theriyuma (2019), it is the upcoming horror-thriller Lift that is set to kick-start his showbiz career and put him on the map as a talent to watch out for.

Excerpts from an interview:,for want of a bet

Horror is a genre that everyone likes; it gives you the ultimate adrenaline rush. Right from my childhood, I have memories of watching movies like the Evil Dead franchise back-to-back with my family at home. Even now, we all go together to watch the Conjuring series.

For Lift though, I took inspiration most from movies like Pizza (Kavin, in fact, plays a cameo in the Karthik Subbaraj-directorial) and the Hindi film Trapped, both of which follow the story of a guy stuck alone in a strange place. I also went back to watch Madhavan sir’s performance in Yavarum Nalam, in which he’s quite extraordinary.

As soon as I left the Bigg Boss house, I started shooting for Lift. We finished the film in just around 20-odd days, and then it went to post-production. I was eagerly waiting for the release, but the pandemic had other plans. After that, I grew my hair and put on weight for another project, but unfortunately, that got dropped. It just goes to show that I’m still in that phase where everything is still uncertain and nothing really is in our hands. (sigh)

However, I’m working on a web-series now, and the shooting of my next film should start in December if all goes well.,soccer bet zim

I’m a really comedic person in real-life! I’ve grown up with my cousins, and we constantly rag and tease each other; that’s the kind of humour I’m used to in any environment. But my biggest inspiration for comedy is one man: Nelson anna (the director of Doctor and Beast).

I’ve known Nelson anna for a decade now. Before my acting career worked out, I used to spend all my time at his office; it’s another home of sorts for me. When nothing seemed to be working out for me, it was he who offered me a chance to become an assistant director, and keep trying my luck as an actor simultaneously. Would anyone else do that? He wanted me to wait patiently — with him by my side — and cross every hurdle. I owe him and Sivakarthikeyan anna (who has sung Inna Mylu for Lift) so much for helping me in several stages of life.

 

Actually, my biggest acting inspiration is also Nelson. When the audience watched Kolamavu Kokila, they saw all those different interesting characters. But I saw Nelson in all of them, be it Nayanthara or Yogi Babu or even the kid. He’s an incredible actor, and I’ve learnt a lot from the way he narrates and performs a scene. He’s going to watch Lift and point out how I’ve copied so much from him (laughs).

This is the truth: I’m not part of Beast in any capacity. There were initial talks for me to be involved in it, but then my solo projects took shape, and I began focusing on them instead. However, just like little kids watching planes taking off, it was always my dream to watch the shooting of a big-budget film. I never even imagined that I’d get to meet Vijay sir in person. So whenever possible, I visit the sets of Beast to just take in all the sights and sounds; it still continues to amaze me.
