The shooting of Vishal’s upcoming film Naan Sigappu Manithan commenced in the city with the customary ‘pooja’. Vishal, buoyed by the success of his Pandianadu which released in theatres on Deepavali, has repeated Lakshmi Menon as the heroine again in Naan Sigappu Manithan.
Pandianadu was also the first film for Vishal as he made the film under his home banner Vishal Film Factory which was launched recently. Vishal’s earlier films were produced by his brother Vikram Krishna’s G.K. Film Corporation. Whatever happened between the brothers hasn’t come to light but Vishal went ahead and launched his own production house.
Naan Sigappu Manithan, title of superstar Rajinikanth’s action-packed super-duper hit film of the mid-eighties, is Vishal’s second film as producer. Thiru, who had directed Vishal in a few films including Samar, would be directing Naan Sigappu Manithan too.
