We had reported earlier that Santhanam would be next playing the lead in a yet-untitled horror comedy, to be directed by Lollu Sabha fame Ram Bala. The actor had been sporting a toned body and a bearded look for the shoot for quite some time now. Shananya, a debutant, had been signed as the female lead and the shoot had begun on November 16th.

In a recent development, actor Saurabh Shukla, known for his roles in Haasan’s Hey Ram and Shankar’sAnniyan, has also been roped in to play a pivotal role in the film. He would be essaying a positive role that would be in stark contrast to the character of Santhanam. Shukla had earlierwon the National Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of a judge in the 2013 Bollywood film Jolly LLB.
