A film that has Tamil cinema fans everywhere excited is the upcoming Saani Kaayidham, starring National Award-winning actress Keerthy Suresh in the lead role alongside acclaimed director Selvaraghavan, who is making his acting debut. Being directed by Arun Matheswaran of the upcoming Rocky fame, Saani Kaayidham was announced officially last year during the lockdown period by Screen Scene Media Entertainment and will feature music by celebrated composer Yuvan Shankar Raja. In that light, Selvaraghavan took to his social media pages on Thursday to drop the announcement that he has joined the shooting of Saani Kaayidham to begin filming his portions. 

Taking to his Twitter page, Selvaraghavan tweeted saying he turns an actor starting today in Saani Kaayidham after being a filmmaker for 23 years in Tamil cinema after he graduated in 1997 and debuted as a screenwriter first in Thulluvadho Ilamai  in 2002, which was directed by his father Kasthuri Raja and marked the acting debut of his brother and National Award-winning actor Dhanush. Sharing a photo of himself before beginning the shoot, Selvaraghavan wrote, "23 years of filmmaking and then from today as an actor ! #saanikaayidhamshoot I owe it all to my fans ! They made me !" Check it out below: 

A title look poster for Saani Kaayidham was released in August last year, which raised plenty of curiosity among fans. Likewise, the Saani Kaayidham first look poster released introduced Selvaraghavan and Keerthy Suresh as "the most wanted" and featured both stars sitting in front of knives and other sharp lethal weapons, while covered in blood stains. Saani Kaayidham is Arun Matheswaran's second directorial after his raw action drama, Rocky, starring Taramani fame Vasanth Ravi and legendary director Bharathiraja, which is still awaiting its release. 

Touted to be an intense and raw action drama, the upcoming Saani Kaayidham is a female-centric film and will also include in its technical team names like Yamini Yagnamurthy for the cinematography, editing by Nagooran and production design by Ramu Thangaraj. Stunts in the film will be overseen by Dhilip Subbarayan, followed by Vinay Sridhar for the sound design and costume design by Madhulika Kapilavayi. 

Saani Kaayidham has generated massive excitement among fans as it sees Selvaraghavan turning an actor after he enthralled viewers as a director with his blockbuster films. It is to be noted that Galatta Media first reported in November 2019 that Arun Matheswaran and Screen Scene Media Entertainment would be collaborating for a project, which was later revealed to be as Saani Kaayidham.
