Actress ‘Kayal’ Anandhi is to play the lead role in an upcoming film titled oddly as En Aaloda Seruppa Kaanom which is to be directed by Jagannath.
Jagannath is not new to Kollywood and has directed the lieks of Vijay, Cheran and Nandha in the past in films such as Puthiya Geethai, Raman Thediya Seethai and Kodambakkam (respectively in that order). Making a comeback to Kollywood after several years, Jagannath is conscious of the film’s title and justifies it!
“Not many may like the title but a survey among youths revealed that they liked it. Those in the above-50 category might blame the producer/director of being arrogant. However, producer S. Sakthivel liked the title after he watched the film and in fact helped us in planning the footage for the release of the film’s teaser.
“Anandhi was hesitant initially in pairing up opposite ‘Pakoda’ Pandi. However, after Pandi’s name was changed as Tamizh and after she was shown a few footages starring him, she agreed to pair up opposite him. Others essaying lead roles are Yogi Babu, K.S. Ravikumar and Singampuli,” concludes Jagannath. Ishan Dev is scoring the film’s music.
