Malaysian to produce Tamil film
A Malaysian industrialist of Tamil origin has launched the production of a Tamil film in Chennai.
The film, titled "Andha Naal Gnaabakam", is more than a just business venture for Gnanasekaran, also known as 'Senthamizh' Sekar.
'Senthamizh' means 'pure Tamil', and is the name Gnanasekaran has given to his industries as well as to his daughter.
The film will be directed by Manibharathi, the maker of "Anbey, Anbey".
It will not be a run-of-the-mill affair, but will tell a "very different story based on the life of a friend who is a civil engineer", Manibharathi said.
Vidyasagar, who scored the hit music of the Prabhudeva-starring "Autograph", has promised to repeat the performance for this film, he said.
Sridevika, who starred in "Ramakishna", will play the female lead. The male lead is yet to be decided.
The release is planned for next Valentine's Day.
