Santosh Sivan, Priyadarshan are back

Noted filmmaker Priyadharshan and cinematographer-director Santosh Sivan will be working together after a gap of almost 17 years.

The two last worked in Kalapani (Siraichalai in Tamil), which earned the cinematographer a National Award. Sabu Cyril, who also won a national award for the same movie, has also been roped in for the new project.

Sources said the trio are uniting to remake Samuthirakani’s Nadodigal in Hindi. This also marks the 19th Hindi remake of director Priyadharshan. The director has planned to cast newcomers in the lead for the film, as Samuthirakani did for Nadodigal.
