National Award-winning actor-filmmaker Samuthirakani hopes to work with actor Jayam Ravi for his next film. The Visaranai actor’s latest Tamil directorial film Appa has been received warmly by audiences.
“I’m in talks with Ravi, and have a script ready for him. The film is tentatively titled Thondan, and I had originally written it for actor Sasikumar. If everything goes as planned, we might start shooting this year-end,” said Samuthirakani.
The project reportedly also stars Telugu actor Allari Naresh. “I haven’t finalised the cast yet. It’s too early to comment,” he said.
Jayam and Samuthirakani had previously worked on Tamil thriller, Nimirndhu Nil. Upon completing Jayam’s project, Samuthirakani will commence work on his long delayed directorial, Kitna.
