Recently, we reported that veteran director Mahendran plays Udhayanidhi’s dad in the Tamil remake of Maheshinte Prathikaaram. The Theri villain has been roped in to play an important role in Vijay Sethupathi’s Seethakathi, which will be directed by Balaji Tharaneetharan of Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom fame.
Sources say that the story narrated by Balaji Tharaneetharan has impressed Mahendran and he immediately gave his nod. To be produced by Passion Studios, Seethakathi is said to be a feel-good drama film based on artists.
Earlier, the makers signed Oviya, Remya Nambeesan and Gayathri play pivotal characters in the film. However, the team is doubtful about the inclusion of Kalavani actress as she is busy with Kamal Haasan’s reality show Bigg Boss.
The producers of Seethakathi couldn’t contact Oviya as mobile phones are not allowed inside the house but we hear that they do have an alternative choice to replace the actress.
