Kalaipuli S. Thanu is the name known for many biggies and firsts in Kollywood. The mega producer has launched his next movie Kandasamy in a grand style. He has come out with an electronic invitation costing Rs.15000, to announce his film. It is for the first time in world cinema that a producer is inviting industry people giving out such a costly invitation. The producer claimed that this feat will soon find a place in the Guinness Book of World Records!
Vikram, Shriya, Raghuvaran and Vivek are playing the lead roles in Kandasamy and the film is being directed by Susi Ganesan.
The formal announcement function was held at Chennai Sathyam Cinemas on Monday where the electronic invitation was released. Speaking on the occasion, Thanu said, "It is the brain child of director Susi Ganesan. The director had mooted this 'different idea' and had been to various countries like Italy, Greece, America and Japan to prepare it. The invite was finally made in China at a cost of Rs.15000!! 1,500 such invites have been made for the occasion. It is a maiden attempt in the history of world cinema and this effort will find a place in the Guinness Book of World Records".
Susi Ganesan, the director of Kandasamy said, "All the efforts are possible only due to the support of producer Thanu. The shooting will commence from 23rd September in a grand manner at Mount Road, Devi Theatre".
