For the first time, Santhanam will play three roles in his upcoming flick, which is said to be a sci-fi thriller. Debutant director Karthik Yogi is helming the project, which is yet to be titled.
Says the director, “As soon as I completed writing the script, I thought that someone who could fit into the hero’s shoes, do comedy, romance and yet have some innocence could alone do justice to the hero character, and I felt Santhanam would be apt for it.”
For those who want to know more about Karthik, he worked as an associate in films like ‘Balloon’ and ‘Sawaari’, and is the dialogue writer of the critically acclaimed crime thriller ‘Maanagaram’, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.
Shooting for his debut movie would commence in November and the Santhanam-starrer would be predominantly shot in Chennai. Since it is a sci-fi subject, it is expected that a grand set would be erected for the shoot. Plans are on to complete the flick at the earliest and to release it by early next year.
