Lingusamy has pulled of the biggest coup in recent times. He has managed to rope in the elusive Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu to do his next film which will be a bi lingual in Telugu and Tamil. Silambarasan will be the hero in the Tamil version.

Speaking exclusively to he says: “This film will be a bilingual with Silambarasan in the Tamil version and superstar Mahesh Babu in the Telugu version. Dhayanidhi Alagirii will be the producer for the Tamil while Tirupati Prasad of Mega Supergood films will produce the Telugu version. The Tamil version will start rolling in July after Simbu completes the first schedule of Poda Podi, while the Telugu version will commence by September”.

Remember that Ligusamy shares a great rapport with Dhayanidhi whose Cloud Nine distributed his super hit Paiyaa in Tamil Nadu. Last the duo had gone with Simbu and editor Antony, to chill out in Macau for a few days.

Currently the director is in Orange County a resort in Coorg writing the script of the film which will be another romantic action entertainer. Adds Lingu: “I normally go somewhere to write my scripts and Orange County in Coorg is an enchanting resort spread over 300 acres of lush plantation, a perfect serene place for me to work”.
