Actor Jayam Ravi is busy with the promotions of his forthcoming Tamil release Tik Tik Tik, tipped to be India’s first space film. In a recent media interaction, he revealed that his 25th film will be directed by his brother Mohan Raja, who has apparently already begun working on the script. Ravi and Raja had previously worked together in films such as M Kumaran S/O Mahalakshmi, Something something…Unnakum Ennakum and Santhosh Subramaniam. A couple of years ago, they teamed up for again for the path-breaking Thani Oruvan, which went on to be a box-office hit. Amid rumours they plan to join hands for a sequel, Ravi has confirmed about teaming up once again.

“He taught me to ride a cycle; he taught me to ride a bike fast; he took me to film festivals and promised me he’d make me an actor. As promised, he made Jayam. A few years ago, he said let’s do a film like Thani Oruvan and we did it. He has now said he will direct my 25th film and he has already started working on something which I’m very excited to see,” Ravi said, but didn’t confirm if the project will indeed be a sequel to Thani Oruvan.

Raja, meanwhile, is basking in the success of Sivakarthikeyan’s Velaikkaran, which has completed its 25th day run in cinemas and still going strong at the box-office. The film has emerged as the biggest grosser in Siva’s career.
