After the disappointment of the expulsion of Pallikoodam from Canes, director Thankar Bachan has broken the silence by declaring his next film. Surprisingly, actor Sathyaraj will play the lead role in his next film. The director too is going to appear in a guest role.
Thankar performed pooja for a film titled Onbathu Roopai Nottu a few years ago and Oscar Films Ravichandran was supposed to produce it. But the project was dropped following misunderstanding between Sathyaraj and Thankar. The director then moved on to another film titled Thendral.
But the duo seem to have solved their differences during the shooting of Periyar, where Sathyarj played the title role and Thankar cranked the camera. Now they have decided to join their hands again for a new film.
Thankar revealed that the script would be taken from one of his famous short stories. It is expected of Sathyaraj to take up more meaningful roles following the success of Periyar. He has received lots of accolades for his performance in the film. So, he has taken a wish step by agreeing to work with Thankar.
