Prasanna, who plays a bridegroom in the upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy Kalyana Samayal Saadham (KSS) - a story about a big fat south Indian wedding, says he missed remarrying his wife-cum-actor Sneha on screen.
"It would have been a wonderful experience to marry Sneha all
over again. In fact, to marry someone else on screen made me miss
her more than ever. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed getting
married on screen for KSS," Prasanna told IANS.
He says initially he was to team with Sneha for KSS,
but they dropped the idea on mutual consensus. "We planned to work
together in the film, but later realised that we didn't want to
cash in on our real-life relationship. We share a very personal
relationship and, therefore, we didn't want to do a film just for
the heck of it," he said.
However, he confirmed they will soon be seen together on the big
screen. "We got plenty of offers to work together post-wedding, but
we didn't take them up. We will soon be seen together in a Tamil
film to be directed by my dear friend Arun Vaidyanathan, who has
co-produced KSS," he added.
Prasanna married Sneha on May 11, 2012. KSS was one of the projects he began working on soon after the wedding. He admits that filming for KSS brought back memories of his own wedding. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...

A Still From KSS
"I give prime importance to content but not whether I'm working
with a debutant or not. I was impressed with the way Prasanna
(director) promised to execute the film. Most importantly, the plot
of the film is fresh and has been untouched in Tamil cinema," the
I Have Immense Respect For Arun: Prasanna
"(Producer) Arun (Vaidyanathan) was hell-bent that I do this
