It looks like Santhanam is on a film signing spree. Having wrapped up Server Sundaram, Santhanam now has three untitled ventures with directors Selvaraghavan, Sethuraman and Pachaiyapan Raja each. The actor has signed another film with Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya director Manikandan. The director reveals, “Santhanam will play a cop in this action-comedy-thriller. Even though the film is an out and out comedy flick, there are a few serious moments in the script. Initially, Santhanam and I decided to do a different film, but our friend Giri, came up with this script, which we thought would be right for both of us now. I will be writing the screenplay as well.”
This venture also boasts an ensemble cast — “We are confident of roping in Anegan fame Amyra Dastur to play the female lead. Other than Amyra, we have signed on Kovai Sarala, Naan Kadavul Rajendran, Anandhraj, Robo Shankar, Salim Ghosh and others to provide comic relief,” he adds. Shooting of this film will go on floors on November 7 in Chennai. “The dialogue portions will be shot in Chennai and the songs will be shot in exotic locations,” he shares. Music director Ghibran, cinematographer Gopinath and editor Ramarao will be a part of the technical crew.
