Sathish Ninasam and Vijayaprasad’s Petromax to start off with a new story
Vijayaprasad has come up with a script which will feature Sathish in a youthful character
Actor Sathish Ninasam and director Vijayaprasad’s Petromax will start off with a new story. “We had originally teamed up for a subject which was titled Petromax. However, that did not materialise, and now, Vijayaprasad has come up with a new script, under the same title, which will feature me in a youthful character,” says Sathish.
The actor had also announced his association with Vijayaprasad for another film, titled Parimala Lodge, which has now been pushed further. “I am a big fan of Vijayaprasad’s writing and his unique subjects. I have been wanting to work with the director for a while, but some issue or the other would crop up. We had planned to take up Parimala Lodge, but the pandemic did not allow us to kick-start the film in time. We are now waiting for a nod from the production end to take the film on floors. I am glad that we are finally collaborating on a project,” he adds.
Parimala Lodge will be produced under the actor’s home banner, Sathish Picture House, in association with Petromax Pictures, owned by the director Vijayaprasad. Another producer is likely to be part of this project, details of whom will be revealed at a later date.
Sathish, who will resume shooting from October, has chalked out his plans. He will start filming for Dasara, a murder mystery produced by Sharmiela Mandre, and for another film directed by Manohar and produced by Parvathi. “I will be juggling between these three films,” he says.
