Santhanam was last seen in the recently released Dikkiloona which opened to a mixed response from the fans and critics. Dikkiloona, directed by Karthik Yogi, had a direct OTT release on Zee 5 platform. Following that, Santhanam is now all set for his next film, Sabhaapathy which is currently in the final stages of post production. Sabhaapathy is directed by debutant R Srinivasa Rao and has music scored by Sam CS. Produced by C Ramesh Kumar under the banner of RK Entertainment, the film features Preeti Verma as the female lead, while the supporting cast includes MS Bhaskar, Shayaji Shinde, Cook with Comali fame Pugazh, and others.

Pugazh will be seen playing Santhanam's sidekick/best friend in this film and let us hope that the movie gives him a good breakthrough. Baskar Arumugam has handled the cinematography, while the editing and art direction departments are headed by Leo John Paul and AR Mohan respectively. Sabhaapathy is touted to be a family drama that will revolve around the relationship between a father and a son. MS Bhaskar will be seen playing the role of Santhanam's father in the film. Meanwhile, the makers have now released the first single song from the film and this track is called 'Mayakkathe Maaya Kanna'.

This soulful melody number is crooned by Super Singer sensation Srinisha Jayaseelan and has lyrics penned by Vivek. Sam CS has composed an interesting number that has a good touch of Carnatic music, making the song likeable. We also get to see a sneak peek of the visuals of this number featuring the lead actors - Santhanam and Preeti Verma. The lyric video of the song has been released on the official YouTube channel of Think Music who has acquired the audio rights of the movie.

The television satellite rights of the film have been sold to Colors Tamil. For now, check out the newly released first single, 'Mayakkathe Maaya Kanna' from Santhanam's Sabhaapathy here:
