Director Manikandan, who debuted as director with the Santhanam-Srinivasan-Sethu starrer Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya, has launched his next film titled Dhinasari 4 Kaatchigal which would have ‘Mirchi’ Shiva and Santhanam playing prominent roles.
Manikandan’s Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya, which released in January this year, was an instant hit with the masses thanks to Santhanam’s one-liners and the self-styled ‘power star’ Srinivasan’s presence. Sequences wherein Santhanam would repeatedly pull the rug from under the feet of Srinivasan were appreciated by the audiences, making the film a super-duper hit.
Now that Srinivasan is cooling his heels behind prison bars, Manikandan has roped in ‘Mirchi’ Shiva as the hero in his next film. Santhanam and various comedians would be part of the film which is produced by L. Thenappan. Santhanam and Shiva had earlier starred together in Kalakalappu, last year’s hit film directed by Sundar C, and share warm vibes between them. The duo starring Thillu Mullu released on friday (14th June) and are also pairing for another film Ya Ya.
Other artistes including the heroine of Dhinasari 4 Kaatchigal are being finalized.
