Veteran actor Sathyaraj gets to play the lead role in films after a gap in close friend and film-maker Manivannan’s upcoming film Nagaraja Chozhan MA, MLA, which is a sequel to the duo’s highly successful 1994 film Amaidhi Padai. In typical Manivannan style, the film is billed as a political satire and has the satirical Sathyaraj essaying the lead role.
Nagaraja Chozhan MA, MLA(NCMM) happens to be Sathyaraj’s 200th film in his career spanning more than three decades and is also the 50th directorial venture of Manivannan. The famed combo of Sathyaraj and Manivannan, which rocked in films such as Maaman Magan, Puthu Manithan and Vaazhkaichakkaram to name a few, is back with NCMM.
V-House Productions, which produces NCMM, is arranging a grand function on the eve of the audio-launch of NCMM to mark the twin occasion as it happens to be Manivannan and Sathyaraj’s 50th and 200th film respectively. The cast includes Varsha Awasthi (Peranmai fame), Manivannnan, actor-director Seeman, Raghu Manivannan, M S Baskar, Vaiyapuri, Mrudhula, Hansiba and Krishnamurthy.
Suresh Kamakshi and S. Ravichandran, producers of the film, say that the date would soon be fixed to hold the audio launch of the film and assured that it would be a function ‘to remember’ as it marks three events: launch of the film’s audio, Sathyaraj’s 200th film and Manivannan’s 50th film (as director).
