and Sangili Murugan worked together. After this film, Murugan
stopped film production temporarily due to financial reason.

films like Jayam, Kumaran son of Mahalakshmi. After the
gap of 10 long years, Sangili Murugan returns to film production
with Azhagar Malai.
SP Rajakumar directs the film. Earlier, he has directed Pon
Manam with Prabhu and Suvalakshmi. RK, introduced as a baddie in
Thoondil is going to make his maiden appearance as hero
through this movie. Bhanu is doing the lead lady role after her
successful debut in Thamirabarani.
