Arunraja Kamaraj's Nenjuku Needhi (remake of Article 15), starring Udhayanidhi Stalin in lead role, was released last month. The Tamil version, which opened to decent reviews, had slight changes compared to Anubhav Sinha's Bollywood version, which had Ayushmann Khurrana headlining the project.

The hard-hitting portrayal of a few unfortunate incidents and performances of a few actors stood out in Nenjuku Needhi which is likely to drop on Netflix later this month. After earning praises from the audience and a few celebs, the film has now garnered the attention of Sarath Kumar.

The veteran actor-producer has taken to his Twitter page to heap praise on the movie. Urging people to eradicate untouchability in the society, he mentioned Udhay's performance as effective and added that the movie has great narration by Arunraja.

His tweet read, "Had the privilege of watching Nenjukka Needhi yesterday , a deep emotional film with a message for equality and a clear message that untouchabilty should be eradicated in our society. A calm dignified and effective performance @Udayanidhi, great narrative @Arunrajakamaraj, Kudos (sic)." 

A couple of days ago, he went gaga over Kamal Haasan's Vikram as well and posed for a photo with Kamal, Vijay Sethupathi and Lokesh along with his wife Radhika. Sarath is currently busy with Vamshi Paidipally's Thalapathy 66 (tentative title), starring Vijay in the lead. 

During a Twitter interaction, he revealed that the shooting of the project is progressing well and that an update about the movie can be expected soon. He is reportedly playing Vijay's father in the film which is slated for a theatrical release on Pongal 2023. Among his upcoming projects, the most anticipated ones are Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan and the sequel of Disney+ Hotstar series Parampara.
