Arunraja Kamaraj's first directorial venture Kanaa is set to hit the screens on December 21. Kanna is produced by Sivakarthikeyan Productions and is co-produced by Kalai Arasu. Kanaa has Aishwarya Rajesh as the main lead along with Sathyaraj, Darshan, Ilavarasu, Munishkanth Ramadoss, Rama, Savari Muthu, Antony Bhagyaraj and many other newcomers.


Apart from the initial cast, Sivakarthikeyan can be seen in the teaser and extensively in the trailer of the movie. It was highly touted that Sivakarthikeyan might be in for an extended cameo role in the movie and now the director of the movie Arunraja has revealed Sivakarthikeyan's role in the movie.


Arunraja Kamaraj said, "Everyone seems to be brimmed up with their own beliefs that Sivakarthikeyan is doing a cameo. But the fact is that he will be seen in a much more prominent role in this film. Sivakarthikeyan always believes in doing justice to anything he is involved. Although he has produced this film and even made my 'Kanaa' of becoming a filmmaker come true, he had no intentions of appearing in this film for the sake of it. Precisely, the script had a substantial character, which actually keeps pushing the story ahead. However, even while discussing it, Siva didn’t have any idea of essaying it. In fact, he himself was considered many other familiar actors to perform this role, but I was finally able to convince him that he would give a perfect touch to it. I am sure Sivakarthikeyan’s screen presence will be liked by all in Kanaa.
