Model-turned-actress Meghana Ellen has bagged another meaty role after Uruthikol. Ace director Bala’s brother Chandramouli, who bankrolls the film, has roped her in for his flick titled Kabali Talkies.
The film has comedy actor Muruganandham, who made his debut in direction with a Vishnu Vishal film, as the protagonist. Cinematographer Ravi Srinivasan, who had assisted G.M. Kumar, wields the megaphone for the first time.
Talking to DC, Ravi said, “Kabali Talkies is a family entertainer. It is about a guy who wants to make it big in the film industry and struggles to achieve that.

The supporting cast includes Bhagyaraj, G.M. Kumar, Velu Prabhakaran, Imman Annachi, Charlie and Madhan Bob. The Sabesh-Murali duo composes the music....
