After impressing critics and audiences alike with her flawless performance in R Madhavan's boxing drama Irudhi Suttru, actress Ritika Singh has bagged the lead role in film-maker Manikandan's Aaandavan Kattalai.
"Ritika has been paired with Vijay Sethupathi in the film, which is slated to go on the floors next month. When director Manikandan saw 'Irudhi Suttru', he was stunned by her performance and in a span of the next few days, he brought her on board," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Tipped to be an entertainer with a twist, Aaandavan Kattalai will be produced by G.N Anbu Chezhiyan of Gopuram Films.
"It will be something very quirky and away from regular cinema. Unlike 'Kaaka Muttai', it will deal with a lighter subject with a good scope for humour. But it won't be a full-length comedy," Manikandan had earlier told IANS. The rest of the cast for the film is yet to be finalised.
