Santhanam’s previous film Dagaalty did not do well in the box office, and his long-pending release Server Sundaram helmed by Anand Balki which was to release on Valentine’s Day has been postponed due to financial issues. The actor will also feature in director Kannan’s Biskoth which is due for release this month.
