Actor and filmmaker Sasikumar, till now seen in rural avatars, seems to be shifting gears. He has opted for an urban role in his next tentatively titled Sasikumar 19. The actor will be seen playing a modern guy who works in the IT sector. Nikki Galrani will for the first time be teaming up with Sasi in the film.
The movie is directed by Kathirvelu, a former associate of Sundar C. Going his mentor’s way, Kathir has roped in a host of veterans, close to 30 in number, including Vijayakumar, Nirosha, Radha Ravi, Thambi Ramaiah, Rekha, Sumithra, Satish and Yogi Babu.
Sasikumar will be seen in a different dimension and he will have an image makeover, says the director. The shooting, which begins in Pollachi on Feb 11 , will extend to Malaysia as well, says an insider. Sam CS will be scoring the music and Siddharth is behind the camera.
Sasikumar is presently busy with films like Nadodigal 2 which is gearing up for release, Kombu Vecha Singam and Kennedy Club....
