Director Santhosh P Jayakumar, who is remembered for two adult comedies-‘Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu’ and ‘Hara Hara Mahadevaki’, has turned an actor. He will play the lead role in the sequel to ‘IAMK’.
It may be recalled that Gautham Karthik played the lead role in the first part. Sources say Santhosh took the decision to play the protagonist since no other heroes have shown interest to act in the sequel after the first part created huge controversy.
According to sources, besides actors like Manobala, Danny, Rajendran, and Ravi Maria, Santhosh Jayakumar has roped in two young actresses as heroines. Shooting has already started and plans are on to complete it soon, they add.
‘Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu’ is a 2018 adult comedy horror film, written and directed by Santhosh and produced by K E Gnanavel Raja. The film stars Gautham Karthik, VJ Sha Ra, Yashika Aannand, Vaibhavi Shandilya, and Chandrika Ravi in the lead roles, with Rajendran, Bala Saravanan, Karunakaran, John Vijay, and Jangiri Madhumitha playing supporting roles.
The film was remade in Telugu as ‘Chikati Gadilo Chitha Kottudu’ and was theatrically released on March 21, 2019.
