Alphonse Puthren, the hitmaker is all set to be back into film-making after a short gap. If the reports are to be believed, Alphonse has roped in star kid Kalidas Jayaram as the lead actor of his next venture.
A few popular Tamil media has reported that Kalidas has already signed the project, which will be solely released in Tamil. However, Alphonse Puthren and Kalidas Jayaram have not commented on the reports yet.
