Udhayanidhi Stalin first release of the year was Saravanan Irukka Bayamean. The film starred Regina Cassandra, Srushti Dange and Soori in important roles. The film did reasonably well amidst the Baahubali storm.

His next release is Gaurav Narayan’s action thriller Ippadai Vellum. He is also working on Podhuvaga En Manasu Thangam which is directed by Thalapathy Prabhu.

Now Udhayanidhi has signed a new project with noted director Priyadarshan. The director’s last year release Oppam was a huge hit while his Sila Samayangalil won international acclaim and was selected for the 74th Golden Globes.

Udhayanidhi’s film will be bankrolled by Santhosh of Moonlight Entertainments. The other cast and crew details will be announced shortly.
