The maverick director Selvaraghavan, who is awaiting the release of Nenjam Marapathillai pulled a shocker when he announced that he has signed on comedian-turned-actor Santhanam for a film. After nearly six months, the untitled project is all set to go on floors. We had earlier reported that this film would be a romantic comedy.
A source close to the actor says, “Santhanam will start shooting for Selvaraghavan’s project from December 1 in Hyderabad. He will be seen as a guy-next-door in the film and will not undergo a drastic make-over. Currently, he is shooting for Manikandan’s Odi Odi Uzhaikanum, in which he is sharing screen space with Anegan fame Amyra Dastur.”
The name of the heroine of the untitled film is still under wraps. However, the source revealed, “The makers were considering Sai Pallavi and another new face as the leading lady. The official announcement will be made in a couple of days.”
Yuvan Shankar Raja, who is riding high on the success of Nenjam Marapathillai, will be scoring music for this movie....
