Actor Santhanam on Tuesday took to Twitter to reveal that the shoot of his upcoming Tamil film, Gulu Gulu has been completed. Santhanam plays the lead in this one, directed by Rathna Kumar, who had written dialogues for Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram and Lokesh Kanagaraj's Master. Speaking about Gulu Gulu, Rathna Kumar in multiple interviews had said, the film will neither be like his previous outings, Meyaadha Maan nor Aadai. "It revolves around the life of a nomad and his misadventures!" Further, Rathna Kumar had confirmed the film will be a theatrical release. The film's motion poster was unveiled by directors Nelson Dilipkumar, Karthik Subbaraj, Lokesh Kanagaraj, Venkat Prabhu and Gautham Menon, on March 16. It had an interesting animation work, with a van, navigating different terrains. 

The motion poster took us a glimpse into Santhanam's character, narrated by Rathna Kumar himself—"Nobody knows him or where he is from. He has travelled across countries and knows 13 languages. But he remembers only the broken English that his mother taught him. He gets bashed up under the pretext of 'social service'. Ask him anything, anytime; he can give you an explanation like Google. But when people call him 'Google', somehow he hears it 'Gulu Gulu'."

Produced by S Raj Narayanan's Circle Box Entertainment, Gulu Gulu has editing by Philomin Raj, music by Santhosh Narayanan and cinematography by Kartik Kannan. Gulu Gulu's has Athulya Chandra, George Maryan, Namita Krishnamurthy, Pradeep Rawat, Lollu Sabha Maaran, Yuvaraj, TSR Bipin, Harish, besides a bunch of newcomers, in supporting roles. Santhanam, who was last seen in Dikkiloona and Sabhaapathy, has Agent Kannayiram, the remake of Telugu hit, Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya, in his pipeline. 

Meanwhile, we hear, that Santhanam is gearing up for his avatar as a filmmaker. A source close to the actor neither confirms it nor denies it. "He's a hard worker and a self-made actor. Of course, Santhanam sir has been wanting to wield the megaphone, for a long time. Only time will tell when! Every time, he takes up a new film, he's interested to explore the technical aspects of it more."
