Actors Sneha and Dhanush are teaming up after a long gap in RS Durai Senthilkumar’s film, first schedule shooting for which is going on currently. Many reports speculate that Sneha might be seen as Dhanush’s mother in the film. However a source close to the film has denied this rumour.
The source told Silverscreen, “These are speculations being made by the media unnecessarily. No such thing is confirmed.” Reports regarding Dhanush’s dual role in the film, and the participation of another female lead, are also yet to be confirmed.
“Currently Dhanush sir is shooting two films back to back – this movie and Asuran by director Vetrimaaran. He completed one schedule of Asuran, and started this film. Next month he will again move to Asuran,” the source added. Details about the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be revealed. The film was announced earlier this month by producers Sathya Jyothi Films, who tweeted pictures of the first day of shoot in Courtallam.
