The poster of Detective Nesamani
Vadivelu's Nesamani, the popular character from the two-decade-old multi-starrer Tamil flick, Friends, needs no introduction. The character, which brought the house down, thanks to the numerous rollicking one-liners, had hit the headlines two years ago when #Pray_For_Nesamani became the top trending hashtag on Twitter in the country. A slew of memes went viral on social media after movie buffs and fans of the legendary comedian celebrated some of the dialogues of the character on social media, which even went on to gain international attention.
On Thursday, a poster of an unknown project, titled Detective Nesamani, started doing the rounds on social media, with Vadivelu seen as an investigative officer on it. It mentioned that Rambhala is directing the film, produced by CV Kumar which will have Ghibran composing music for it. The poster also said that project will have a direct premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
Producer-turned-director CV Kumar was quick to clarify that there is no such project, and that he is unaware of the poster which piqued the curiosity of film buffs. Talking to OTTplay, Kumar said, "The poster was created by an unknown person and many started sharing it on Twitter. It had details of digital streaming and music partners as well which made it look believable. I am not planning any film with Vadivelu now. For now, I'm busy with the post-production of my directorial project, Kottravai, which will be a theatrical release after Deepavali." Later, Kumar took to social media to announce that Detective Nesamani is a fake project; he mentioned that the actor looked stylish in the poster, though.
Kumar, who is also looking forward to the release of Pizza 3 and Titanic, which he has produced, hopes that the two projects might hit screens before Deepavali. He added, "We have been told that movie halls in Tamil Nadu may open from mid-September. If everything goes well, Pizza 3 and Titanic are likely to release in October."
