Samuthirakani-Sasikumar film picks up steam
The duo will be working together for the first time in six years on the bilingual project
If things go as planned, Samuthirakani may soon be directing a bilingual. It's said that his friend and actor Sasikumar, will play the lead in the Tamil version, with Nani of Naan Ee / Eega fame playing the role in the Telugu version.
Samuthirakani, who's directed Sasikumar previously in Naadodigal and Poraali, isn't new to Telugu cinema having remade his films Unnai Charanadaindhen, Naadodigal and Nimirndhu Nil in Telugu as Naalo, Shambo Shiva Shambo and Janda Pai Kapiraju, respectively.
This new film will mark the collaboration of the director and the actor for the first time in six years. While Sasikumar is currently busy with Muthaiah's Kodiveeran, Samuthirakani's acting assignments have him busy with many films, including the Rajinikanth starrer Kaala.
