Director M. Rajesh is all set to make his next film starring comedian-turned-hero Santhanam in the lead.
Rajesh and Santhanam have had mighty successful combinations in the past as Santhanam had invariably starred in almost all of Rajesh’s directorial ventures (Siva Manasula Sakthi, Boss Engira Bhaskaran, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, All In All Azhagu Raja and Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga) except Kadavul Irukkan Kumaru.
After two years, Santhanam is all set to star in Rajesh’s next untitled directorial venture but this time he would be essaying the lead role and not a comedian’s role. Considering the fact that Rajesh’s films have always had the comedian (Santhanam) essaying roles on par with that of the hero, it remains to be seen who is cast as the comedian in his new film which has Santhanam in the lead.
To be made by Sri Thenandal Films, the film is to go to floors in July. Santhanam, who has made a conscious decision not to star in films as comedians, plays the lead roles in a few upcoming films including Server Sundaram, Saaka Podu Podu Raja, etc.
