Upcoming hero Sivakarthikeyan is all set to pair up opposite newbie Keerthi Suresh for the second time in succession in a film to be produced by his close friend Raja.
Sivakarthikeyan paired up opposite Keerthi Suresh in the yet-to-be-released Rajini Murugan which missed its release date in theatres at least twice in the past few months. Daughter of yesteryear’s popular heroine Menaka, Keerthi has already had Idhu Enna Maayam opposite Vikram Prabhu releasing in theatres as her debut film in Kollywood.
Rajkirna, Samuthirakani and Soori play prominent roles in Rajini Murugani produced by Tirupathi Brothers and directed by Ponram of Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam fame. Though the film’s trailer, teaser and audio had been released without any hassles, the film hit a bottleneck when it came to releasing in theatres.
In the meantime, Sivakarthikeyan’s friend Raja has turned producer by floating his banner ‘24 AM Studios’ and would be producing his first film with Sivakarthikeyan essaying the lead role. The new film, as it untitled, is to be directed by debutant Bakkiyaraj Kannan. Anirudh Ravichander, as many would have guessed rightly, is the music director of the film.
P.C. Sreeram would be the cinematographer of the film. Shruti Haasan was earlier in talks to play Sivakarthikeyan’s heroine in the film. Though Shruti agreed with the fee and other terms of the contract, she backed out at the last moment stating ‘call-sheet’ schedules and has now been replaced by Keerthi Suresh. The film’s shoot commences from 02nd November onwards.
