Comedian Santhanam has just launched his third film as producer. Santhanam, who played the lead roles in his first two home productions in Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya and Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham, would be playing the lead role in another film which remains untitled as yet.
Evan as he is essaying the main comedian roles in others’ films including superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Lingaa, Santhanam has silently started work on his third film as a hero. The film would be produced under his banner ‘Handmade Films’.
Ashna Zaveri, last seen opposite Santhanam in Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham, and Akila Kishore, who played a prominent role in Parthiepan’s Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam, have been roped in as the two heroines in the film which would be directed by Muruga-Anand, the duo which directed the popular Lollu Sabha reality show on a private television many years back which was the launch-pad of Santhanam to enter films.
Besides debutant director(s), the film has two more debutants in the form of Gopinath who takes care of cinematography and Santosh Dayanidhi, a former assistant of A.R. Rahman, who debuts as music director. Muruga and Anand say that they owed a lot to Santhanam who had invested in them. “It would be a typical Santhanam film and would have all the things fans expect from him,” they assured.
