The Veteran comedian Goundamani (76), who had been on a sabbatical for the last few years, is making a comeback in a film titled 49-0.
Goundamani himself had said: "Yes, I'll be playing the lead in a film titled 49-O, which will be directed by Arokiadoss, a former assistant of Gautham Menon."
49-O is a Section under the Constitution of India under which a person visiting a polling booth during an election can express his or her reservations about the polling process. They can put on record as person “not willing” to exercise their franchise.
Goundamani will play the role of a farmer who becomes cynical about our political system. A senior heroine will be cast opposite Goundamani. The film is produced by Zero Rules Entertainment and IKnight Entertainment. The shoot of the film has commenced.
