A science-fiction comedy to be bankrolled by Kotapadi J Rajesh’s KJR Studios and Soldiers’ Factory (owned by KS Sinish, the director of Balloon) will feature Santhanam in his first triple action avatar. Santhanam was last seen in A1 which ran into controversies when its teaser was launched, with a group demanding a ban on the film for ‘mocking brahmin practices’. Santhanam will reportedly be seen as the hero, villain, and comedian in this new film.
