Santhanam signs Srinath’s film.

The latest buzz in the industry is that the remake of S S Rajamouli’s Maryada Ramanna, which was supposed to be directed by Kannan with Santhanam in the lead, will now be helmed by actor-director Srinath. Srinath, who debuted as a director with Muthirai, confirms his involvement in the project.

“Pre-production work is on in full swing, and we’re in the process of finalizing the cast and crew. The project might go on the floors mid-March,” he adds. Kannan informs, “I’m ready with my next script Alangaram.

And I will be making this film for the same banner. An official announcement will be made soon.” The actor producer also confirmed that this was mutual decision between Santhanam and the producers.
