Sun Pictures bags SasiKumar’s next

Director-actor-producer Sasikumar’s upcoming film Kutti Puli is likely to hit the screens for April and the buzz is that Sun Pictures have acquired the distribution rights of the film. Kutti Puli features Sasikumar and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles and is being directed by debutante Muthaiah, a former associate of Boopathi Pandian. Music director Ghibran and lyricist Vairamuthu are joining hands after their critically acclaimed album ‘Vaagai Sooda Vaa’. The film is based in Srivilliputhur with Sasi Kumar and Lakshmi Menon pairing once again for Kutti Puli after Sundarapandian. Kutti Puli is being produced by Muruganantham under Village Theatres, who had produced the National Award winning film Vaagai Sooda Vaa. It must be noted that post 2011 with movies like Mankatha and Vedi, Sun Pictures went into a dormant phase and now they are expected to come back to what they do best – picking and choosing their movies and making them commercially viable on the strength of their marketing muscle.
