Santhanam’s second film with director Johnson with whom he had collaborated for A1 last year, was launched with a formal Pooja earlier this week. Talking about the film to DT Next, Johnson said, “We had agreed on doing another film while we were shooting for A1.
Santa’s birthday came across as the right occasion for us to launch the project.” The director said that the film will go on floors from March. “We are finalising the cast and crew and will start shooting for the film from the first or second week of March. The film will be shot across Chennai and Malaysia and will have international standards to it with local flavour,” he added.
Johnson assured us of yet another laugh riot in the offing and said, “The film be much more hilarious than A1 in which Santhanam plays a gangster based in north Chennai. The story then travels to Malaysia. He has been shedding a lot of weight for the role and will have him in a chiselled physique. We have worked on the script in such a way that Santa will convince people as a local gangster.”
