The busiest actor in Tamil film industry is actor Santhanam. Santhanam is acting in one film in the morning and in another film in the afternoon. He produced the film Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya in the First Copy basis.
Santhanam has decided to produce another film in the First Copy basis. Maryada Ramanna is a super hit hilarious Telugu film directed by famous director S Rajamouli. In order to put a full stop to the comments by people that he is directing only leading actors, he had directed this comedy film which had comedy actor Sunil in the lead role.
This film was also a great success and actor Sunil has now become one of the leading actors in the Telugu film industry. The rights of Maryada Ramanna are with PVP Pictures. It was decided to remake this film in Tamil which will have Santhanam in the lead role. The film was supposed to be directed Kannan.
Kannan is now busy directing Settai which is the remake of the Hindi film Delhi Belly. Kannan has mentioned that he is not interested in directing another remake film since he is currently directing a remake film. Kannan has also narrated the story of his next film titled Alangaram to PVP. Now PVP has agreed to produce this film.
Meanwhile Santhanam has approached PVP and told them that he will don the lead role in the Tamil remake of Maryada Ramanna and will also produce it in the First Copy basis. PVP has also agreed for this. Comedy actor and director Srinath will direct this film. Srinath had earlier directed a film titled Muthirai.
