Jiiva’s new film, to be directed by Santhosh Rajan, bankrolled by Super Good Films, was launched recently. Kashmira Pardeshi and Prayaga Nagra have been roped in to play female leads in the project. Meanwhile, Jiiva’s previous movie with the production house, Kalathil Santhippom, which was directed by N Rajasekar, is ready for a theatrical release. The project is Super Good Films’ 90th film, and stars Arulnithi, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Manjima Mohan, Radha Ravi, Robo Shankar and Balasaravanan in crucial roles. The makers are trying to release the movie in theatres on Deepavali.
Ilavarasu, Aadukalam Naren, Marimuthu, Vela Ramamoorthy, Renuka, Sri Ranjani, ‘Boologam’ Rajesh and Benito will be playing supporting roles in the film. Pisasu fame Prayaga Martin appears in a cameo in it. Billed as a commercial entertainer, the movie’s central theme is friendship between two friends. It is said that theatre owners are looking forward to screen a film like this which features a stellar cast after almost eight months of lockdown. It’s been a while since Kollywood has witnessed a film which has two heroes acting together.
R Ashok has written dialogues for the movie, which has lyrics penned by Pa Vijay and Viveka, and music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Abinandhan Ramanujam has cranked camera while Dinesh Ponraj has edited the movie.
