Titling a film makes half the task done; the stronger the title of a film gets etched in the minds of movie-goers, the easier the task of promoting the film becomes. Not for nothing that the likes of Dhanush, Vishal and now Sivakarthikeyan have been opting to name their films after popular hit films starring superstar Rajinikanth!
Music director-turned-hero Vijay Antony has titled his next film as Annathurai even as his latest film Yaman is getting ready to hit the screens in a few weeks’ time. The name ‘Annathurai’ is synonymous with the former chief-minister’s name, though he was fondly referred to only as ‘Anna’, and was loved by both the AIADMK and the DMK cadres and leaders.
Directed by debutant director Srinivasan, Annathurai is directed by Raadhika Sarathkumar’s ‘I’ Pictures. Srinivasan, who had assisted Suseenthiran in the making of many films, is happy that his dream of becoming a director is finally becoming true.
“I’m happy that my very first film as director has Vijay Antony as the hero and Raadhika Ma’am as the producer. Within a week’s time, we would be revealing the artistes and technicians to working the film,” says a confidence-oozing Srinivasan.
