Kasthuri Raja returns to direction
Paandi Muni will star Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff
Director Kasthuri Raja, father of Selvaraghavan and Dhanush, is known for his rural and coming-of-age films such as En Rasavin Manasile, Nattupura Pattu, Ettupatti Rasa, and Thulluvadho Ilamai, which of course was Dhanush's debut film. The director, whose last film was the 2006 Idhu Kadhal Varum Paruvam, is now all set to return to direction with Paandi Muni.
The film will star Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff, who has done a few Tamil films already, including Aaranya Kaandam, Maayavan, and Kochadaiyaan, in which he lent his voice for a character. A source states that apart from the veteran, the film will also star Nikesha Patel and Meghali. While Srikanth Deva will be composing music, Madhu Ambat will handle the cinematography. An official confirmation about the film is expected this week.
