Director R Kannan's last release was Boomerang, starring Atharvaa and Megha Akash in the lead roles. He is currently busy with the pre-production works of his next film. In one of his recent interviews to a popular media channel, Kannan revealed that his next directorial will be with Santhanam. The comedian turned actor is riding high on the box office success of his last release, Dhillukku Dhuddu 2.
The latest update we have got from our sources is that the director has approached legendary comedian Goundamani to act in the film. It is said that the makers have requested him to play Santhanam's father in the film, a role that would have both, humour and strong emotions. However, it is added that the plans are in very nascent stages and Goundamani has not yet signed on the dotted lines.
He has been out of action for the past few months due to his personal commitments and we will have to wait for a few more days to know if this will happen. But, one thing for sure, it will definitely be exciting to see two superstar comedians, Goundamani, and Santhanam together in one film.
