Santhana Bharathi's son debuts as director
Affirming that the pressure is on him to make good his family's legacy, the debutant says that his first film will be based on astrology
Sanjay Bharathi, son of famed director-actor Santhana Bharathi and grandson of actor MR Santhanam, is all set to make his directorial debut with a yet-to-be-titled romantic comedy.
The third generation star sounded quite happy as he recounted his journey. "I started out in 2015 as an assistant to director Vijay, working on films such as Devi, Vanamagan and the yet-to-be-released Watchman. I also assisted him in some ad films, whilst also doing individual projects of my own. I felt that the time is now ripe for me to start to chart my own journey in cinema."
Affirming that the pressure is on him to make good his family's legacy, the debutant says that his first film will be based on astrology. "It is a collection of experiences I and people around me have had. When you watch the film, you will definitely recognise at least one scene from your life depicted on screen."
Produced by Mr. Gokulam Gopalan under the Sree Gokulam Movie banner, the film, whose cast and crew will be announced shortly, will go on floors in early 2019.
