Ashok Selvan-Niharika Konidela Project Goes On Floors; Shoot To Begin Post Lockdown

Last month, it was reported that actor Ashok Selvan and Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren fame Niharika Konidela will be pairing up for a project to be helmed by debutant Swathini, a former associate of director Suseenthiran. The film has now been launched with a pooja on Tuesday, in Chennai and the recording session of songs have commenced by composer Leon James.

The film is being bankrolled by J Selvakumar’s Kenanya Films that had earlier commissioned films like Oru Naal Koothu and Bruce Lee.

Producer J Selvakumar says, “My content inspiration has always been Rajshri Productions that has continuously churned out great family entertainers like Hum Aapke Hain Koun, and Hum Saath Saath Hai. So, when I was looking out for scripts of a similar paradigm with an appropriate blend of family, comedy, love, and emotions, Swathini approached us with a script that fit the bill. Furthermore, she took additional responsibility for reworking and furnishing her script with more family values and substantial characterizations nearly for a year.”


He adds, “With Ashok Selvan’s career graph skyrocketing after the grand success of Oh My Kadavule, I felt more comfortable in expanding the production value of this film. We are happy to have the talented actress Niharika, who can deliver emotions effortlessly. We have kick-started the film’s production with the composing session by music director Leon James and have decided to start the shooting after the situation is back to complete normalcy. We are looking forward to releasing the film exactly 5 months from the commencement of shooting.”

Apart from Leon James, other technicians who have been roped in are AR Soorya for camera, Richard Kevin for edit with Nivetha Joseph on costumes.


While the romantic dramedy’s title hasn’t been announced yet, a source in the know told Silverscreen that it has been titled Senorita.

Meanwhile, Ashok Selvan whose performance in Oh My Kadavule was well-received will next feature in Malayalam director Priyadarshan‘s Marakkar Arabikadalinte SimhamNirman‘s long-delayed Nenjamellam Kadhal, Sandeep Shyam’s Vezham, Vikram Shreedharan’s RedrumAni Sasi’s Telugu untitled, and Thegidi fame Ramesh‘s untitled thriller.

The actor might also be a part of Thegidi 2 and Soodhu Kavvum 2, the scripts of which are reportedly in the final stages.
