Producer-director S.A. Chandrasekhar has named his upcoming directorial venture as Dooring Talkies and has signed up Ilaiyaraaja to compose the music of the film. The film’s shoot has already commenced and has been going on in and around Theni.
Speaking to newsmen during the break in shoot, SAC said “I started my career with the Vijayakanth-starrer Sattam Oru Iruttarai more than 3 decades back and have directed 68 films as on date and Dooring Talkies would be my 69th film. It is also my dram project as I have stitched together 3 short stories to make the script. Ilaiyaraaja scores the music.
“I have taken up the role of a 70-year old in the film. I felt I would be appropriate in the role and decided to do it myself. I have been making films and haven’t been heeding Vijay’s advice to sit down at home casually, relax myself and take some much-needed rest. However, I feel that there can be no rest for a creator; I shall continue to make films as long as my body and mind cooperate,” he said.
On another note, SAC opined that contrary to what is reported in the press, there are no issues involved in the theatrical release of Vijay’s upcoming film Kaththi. “It is nothing but the making of the media; Kaththi would release as per schedule,” he announced.
