The first look of the movie, which is based on real incidents, was released by actor and Selvaraghavan’s brother Dhanush
Movie buffs were in for a big surprise when acclaimed filmmaker Selvaraghavan announced his acting debut with Arun Matheswaran's Saani Kaayidham. A promotional poster from the film, which had him and Keerthy Suresh wielding weapons, was released by the makers last year. Tipped as an action-drama set in the '80s, which is based on real incidents, the movie's first look was released by actor and Selvaraghavan’s brother Dhanush.
On Monday, the director took to his social media account to share a glimpse of his look from the project. The picture he has posted from his caravan has him sporting a rugged beard. Seven Screen Entertainment produces the movie, which will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, cinematography by Yamini Yagnamurthy and editing by Nagooran.
Meanwhile, Selvaraghavan had also commenced his project with Dhanush recently with a photo shoot featuring the latter. Though the film was initially titled Naane Varuven, it looks like the crew will come up with a different title. The first look poster of the movie was released recently and Yuvan, who is composing for it, had announced a while ago that he completed working on the second song. The film will mark the collaboration of Dhanush and Selvaraghavan after Thulluvatho Ilamai, Kadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai and Mayakkam Enna.
The two will be seen in the much-awaited sequel of Aayirathil Oruvan as well. Titled Aayirathil Oruvan 2, Dhanush had earlier revealed that the pre-production of the magnum opus project will take a year's time, and that they are planning to release it in 2024.
On the other hand, Keerthy Suresh is teaming up with Mahesh Babu for the first time in the Telugu film Sarkaru Vaari Paata, the first look of which was released recently. The crew is expected to release the teaser of the film on August 9. Annaatthe, starring Rajinikanth in the lead, Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and Good Luck Sakhi are other projects of hers.
