Santhanam is back as a lead actor and this time around in the quirky detective comedy Agent Kannayiram. The film, directed by Manoj Beedha is a remake of the 2019 Telugu film Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya, which was directed by Swaroop RSJ. The trailer, which was released recently, gives a glimpse of Santhanam as a stylish detective. It looks like Santhanam goes on to become a detective after his mother's death and after dealing with petty cases, gets some high-profile cases to handle. The film has many quirky lines by Santhanam and the actor seems to be at ease with his character.
The trailer was released by Jayam Ravi, who was last seen on screen as the Chola Crown Prince Arulmozhi Varman in Mani Ratnam's magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan. Taking to his social media handle, Ravi wrote, "Happy to release #AgentKannayiram Trailer #AKTrailer https://youtu.be/2HFRLk2fI8c @manojbeedha_dir has shown @iamsanthanam in a completely different style & classic making.

Interestingly, Jayam Ravi and Santhanam have shared screen space in a number of films, which include Unakkum Enakkum, Santhosh Subramaniam and Thillalangadi.
