Sayessha Saigal is all set to collaborate with Karthi and Pandiraj in their yet-to-be-titled film.

Having made a noteworthy Tamil debut with Jayam Ravi-starrer Vanamagan, actor Sayyeshaa Saigal is currently shooting for Vijay Sethupathi’s Junga across exotic locations in Europe. And now, she is said to have signed an untitled Tamil project with Karthi, who currently awaits the release of Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru.

Set to be directed by Pandiraj, best known for films such as Pasanga and Kathakali, the project is slated to go on the floors later this month and will be wrapped up very soon. The film will reportedly be produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and Imaan will compose the music.

Sayyeshaa made her Tamil debut with Jayam Ravi-starrer Vanamagan.

Even before the release of Vanamagan, Sayyeshaa had signed her second Tamil film, Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja, in Prabhudheva’s direction and the project was to feature Karthi and Vishal in the titular roles. Unfortunately, the project got delayed and will only take off next year as Prabhudheva got busy with other commitments.

Apparently, Sayyeshaa has also been approached for three more big Tamil projects including an offer to star opposite Suriya in his next venture. Sayyeshaa’s dancing skills have drawn the attention of all the leading Tamil filmmakers and it’s just a matter of time before she gets to act alongside some of the leading stars of the industry.

In Junga, directed by Gokul, she plays a flamboyant character born-and-bred in abroad. The film, shot predominantly in France, Austria, Croatia and Bulgaria among other places, is being bankrolled by Vijay Sethupathi. Instead of taking remuneration; Vijay Sethupathi agreed to produce the film on profit-sharing basis, much to the surprise of the director. Junga will showcase him in a different dimension.
