Dinesh – Nandita pair up again.

Dinesh and Nandita, the lead pair of last years surprise hit Attakathi, are coming together again for a new film titled Kukkoo. Directed by Ranjith, a debutant director who had earlier worked under Venkat Prabhu. Attakathi got good reviews and turned out to be successful at the box-office.

Fox Star, which jointly produced the recently released Vathikuchi with producer-director A.R. Murugadoss, has floated his next production venture in Kukkoo. It is reported that Kukkoo was to be produced jointly by Fox Star and Shankars S Pictures but due to some reasons, Shankar opted out of it and Fox has now decided to go it alone in making the film. Raju Murugan, who is an author penning articles in leading regional weeklies, has been chosen as the debutant director to direct Kukkoo.

Rajus choice was Sivakarthikeyan who was approached to play the lead role in the film. Siva, however, expressed his apprehension in playing a blind man at this stage when his career is on the upswing but added that he would go ahead with it if Raju insisted on him playing the role. Raju decided to let Siva live in peace and instead opted to cast the hit pair of Dinesh and Nandita to play the lead role in Kukkoo. The film is to go on floors soon.
