National award winning director Sargunam is all set to start his next titled Sottavalakutti, which has Dhanush, who too is a National award winner, in the lead role.
The film will be prodcued by Kathiresan of Group Company, the man behind hits such as Polladhavan and Aadukalam. Sottavalakutti will be a comical entertainer.
Says Sargunam, ‘Sottavalakutti is a very common word used in the villages of Thanjavur district, which is my native. Sottavazhakutty means a smart, handsome and intelligent young man.’
Stating that Dhanush was very much happy with the script and the title, Sargunam adds, ‘Dhanush will fit very well into the role. In fact, the protagonist roles in Kalavani and Vaagai Sooda Vaa too were tailor made for him. But we were not able to join hands then.’
He said Sottavazhakutty will be a mix of comedy and romance. ‘We are currently finalising rest of the members of the cast and crew. The shooting will start in September.’
