Director Rajesh, who specializes in making hilarious films, was hit hardly after Santhanam begun to do standalone projects as lead hero. Their combination was very popular and worked quite well in almost all movies they worked together, including ‘Siva Manasula Sakthi’, ‘Boss Engira Baskaran’, ‘Oru Kal Oru Kannadi’ and ‘Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga’.
There were rumors that Rajesh is done with Tamil Cinemas as he couldn’t survive without Santhanam. The rumors, apparently, makes sense because all his films were meant only for entertainment that had no story or something useful for audience.
Rajesh last outing Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru was a complete disaster since he was forced to accommodate other comedians in the film. The latest news we hear is that Santhanam has agreed to do a film with him, which will be produced by Sri Thenandal Films.
It is said that Rajesh had narrated a script to Santhanam and impressed with the script. They are planning to commence the shoot in July or August once he gives dates. Santhanam is currently busy shooting for three films – ‘Odi Odi Uzhaikkanum’, ‘Sakka Podu Podu Raja’ and ‘Mannavan Vanthanadi’.
