On Wednesday afternoon, KJR studios took to Twitter to announce that they will be releasing three posters comprising the looks of Santhanam‘s characters in his upcoming film Dikkiloona over the next three days, starting today. The first poster of the film is out now.

A poker-faced Santhanam clad in a yellow sherwani has locked the heads of two others in his arms, they are a spectacled Santhanam donning a brown uniform and a bowl-cut Santhanam in a jogging suit. The three seem to be at an old but well-lit factory.

The film helmed by debutant Karthik Yogi will see Santhanam playing three different roles for the first time. Dikkiloona is being jointly bankrolled by Kotapadi J Rajesh’s KJR Studios and KS Sinish’s Soldiers Factory.


The film’s title, Dikkiloona, is inspired by the famous game comedian Senthil plays in director Shankar‘s action-drama Gentleman (1993).

While cricketer Harbhajan Singh plays the antagonist, Natpe Thunai fame Anagha and Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu Odu Raja fame Shirin Kanchwala play the female leads in the film.


Dikkiloona also stars a long supporting cast including Yogi Babu, Madhumitha, Anand RajMotta RajendranMunishkanthChithra Lakshmanan, Sha Ra, Arun Alexander, Nizhalgal Ravi, and movie tracker Prashanth Rangaswamy. Aravind Kumar is handling cinematography, Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing music, Jomin is editing and A Rajesh is helming art. Dinesh Subbarayan is handling stunts with Sheriff on dance choreography. A Keerthivasan is handling costumes with Arunraja Kamaraj and Saravedi Saran penning lyrics.

The film which wrapped up shoot in February is currently in post-production. The makers are planning a release post-lockdown.

Meanwhile, Santhanam will next feature in R Kannan’s Biskoth, K Johnson‘s untitled, and in Anand Balki‘s long-delayed Server Sundaram. His previous film Dagaalty helmed by Vijay Anand did not see great numbers at the box office.
