Director Seenu Ramasamy spoke to Silverscreen and said, “Arulnithi and I have been in talks for a long time to make a film. After Kanne Kalaimaane, when Maamanithan shooting was on, he spoke to me. Maamanithan dubbing has not started yet, so during this gap we thought we’ll work on this project.”
The film’s story cannot be revealed, but it will be set in a village, the director said. The shoot for the movie is expected to begin in May in Sriviliputhur. The film will be produced by Timeline Cinemas’ Sundar Annamalai, who is currently bankrolling Ashok Selvan’s Redrum.
Seenu Ramasamy is collaborating with Arulnithi, Udhayanidhi Stalin’s cousin for the first time. Incidentally, Seenu’s latest release was Kanne Kalaimaane starring Udhayanidhi and Tamannaah. Composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, his regular collaborator, worked on the music for this film too.
Meanwhile, the shooting and editing for the director’s Maamanithan is complete. The director said, “We are planning to release the film in the next two months.” The much-awaited film stars Vijay Sethupathi, Gayathrie, Guru Somasundaram in important roles. The movie is produced by Yuvan Shankar Raja, who is also composing music along with Ilaiyaraaja and Karthik Raja. Sukumar of Sketch fame is the cinematographer.
This film is Seenu Ramasamy’s fourth project with both Vijay Sethupathi and Gayathrie. Sethupathi is believed to play the role of an auto driver in the film, and the pictures of this went viral on social media a few months back. The director earlier told Silverscreen, Maamanithan talks about social and religious harmony, “perhaps two of the most important concepts for the people.”
The film has been shot Madurai, Kerala, Kashi and Rameswaram.
