Actor Arya has pulled his close friend and comedian-turned-hero Santhanam’s legs by stating at a trailer launch that he could ‘visualize’ Santhanam becoming an ‘action hero’ in future as he has just been granted anticipatory bail by a Chennai Court in a real-life incident relating to attacking a couple of guys.
The trailer of Sakka Podu Podu Raja, which stars Santhanam and Vaibhavi Shandilya in the lead, was released in the city on Saturday. The film also marks the debut as music director of the mercurial Simbu who has roped in music directors Yuvan Shankar Raja and Anirudh Ravichander to sing a song each in his music.
Taking part in the trailer-launch, Arya wished Santhanam good luck in his new outing. “Santhanam’s hard-work has eased the process of turning a hero after starring as a comedian in many films for many years. He has 10 versions for each sequences and it is tough for others to keep pace with him. I like his natural acting with impeccable timing.
“Santhanam has performed some ‘action’ in real life recently and nobody can henceforth cast any doubts whether he would fit into the role of an ‘action hero’,” Arya concluded.
