Director Selvaraghavan known for his cult classics Kadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai, Aayirathil Oruvan, and several others will now be turning actor for a film titled Saani Kaayidham. Helmed by Arun Matheswaran whose film Rockyis still awaiting release, and bankrolled by Screen Scene Media Entertainment, the film will reportedly be a multilingual and will star Keerthy Suresh opposite the director. The announcement was made through a poster.
The poster features the backshot of Selva donning a shirt and half trousers with a knife in hand on the left and a saree-draped Keerthy with a gun in hand and sickle on the back on the right. They’re seen to be opposing a blood-smeared van with beaming headlights and a bunch of men.
The makers took to Twitter to announce the news. They managed to build suspense around the announcement by putting out a poster that said ‘Savithri comes to Pudhupettai’.
