Actor-producer Udhayanidhi Stalin will next team up with director Sasi, who is basking in the success of Tamil drama Pichaikkaran, for a yet-untitled project, slated to go on the floors later this year.
"Director Sasi has been finalised to direct Udhayanidhi in a new
project, which will be bankrolled by Thenandal Films. The project
will only go on the floors after Udhay completes working on his
film with director Suseenthiran," a source told IANS.
According to the source, the directorial opportunity was first
offered to young film-maker Ashwin Saravanan of Maya
"Ashwin was approached by producer Murali with the offer.
However, the former felt he doesn't have a suitable script for
Udhay," the source added.
Udhayanidhi currently has two Tamil projects, including
Manithan, a Tamil remake of Jolly LLB under his
belt. Manithan is being directed by Ahmed of
Endrendrum Punnagai fame. He will also be seen in an
untitled Suseenthiran project.
