Santhanam to play three roles in his next
The film, directed by writer-turned-filmmaker Karthik Yogi, will be produced by Balloon-director KS Sinish in collaboration with KJR Studios
Santhanam, who was recently seen in A1, will next be working on an untitled project that will feature him in a triple role. The film, directed by writer-turned-filmmaker Karthik Yogi, will be produced by Balloon-director KS Sinish, under his production company Soldiers' Factory, in collaboration with KJR Studios. The title of the film will be announced on September 5.
"My film will be a sci-fi comedy and will feature Santhanam in a triple role for the first time. It will be a mix of an experimental script and a commercial family entertainer, with action, sentiment, and romance. You will see a different Santhanam in this film. He will be seen playing the hero, villain, and comedian, and the film will happen across three different timelines," says Karthik, who is debuting as a director with this film, having previously written dialogues for Maanagaram, and worked as an associate director for films such as Sawaari and Balloon.
Santhanam has previously played a dual role in the 2013 Karthi-starrer All in All Azhagu Raja. The upcoming yet-to-be-titled film will go on floors in November and the makers are planning to release it in April 2020. The film will have two female leads, and an announcement on the complete cast and crew is expected soon.
