Cinematographer-turned-actor Natraj Subramaniam has been someone, who doesn’t blindly sign up projects. But he looks up to the best quotients in characterization and how special the screen presence would be. In all likelihood, Richie has been best to his selection. Shedding lights on this film and his role, Natraj says, “I have always been keen on picking the right ones when it comes to role and script selection. Richie will be a much different film from my previous movies. I play a parallel lead role to Nivin Pauly, who is the main protagonist in this movie.”
Richie as known earlier is a remake of super hit Kannada movie ‘Ulidhavaru Kandante’. Kishore originally played the role that is essayed by Natraj in this film. Nivin Pauly’s role was enacted by Rakshit Shetty and Shraddha Srinath plays a journalist.
The film is directed by Gautham Ramachandran, who earlier was an associate to director Rajeev Menon.
