It was announced earlier this year debutant filmmaker Shree Karthick's bilingual flick has been titled Kanam and Oke Oka Jeevitham in Tamil and Telugu respectively. Billed as the comeback vehicle of Amala Akkineni to Tamil cinema after a three-decade hiatus, the movie has Sharwanand and Ritu Varma, too, essaying important characters. 

After the project was launched, Amala had expressed the excitement of working in the project and said she can't wait for its first look to be unveiled. Produced by SR Prabhu's Dream Warrior Pictures, Kanam stars Ramesh Thilak and Sathish as well in crucial roles. Their characters will be enacted by Vennela Kishore and Priyadarshi Pulikonda respectively in the Telugu version. 

The production house's last two outings, Kaithi (streaming on Amazon Prime Video) and Sulthan (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar), which had Karthi playing the lead, also had simultaneous releases in Tamil and Telugu. They have now come up with an update on its teaser release. 

The social media handle of the production house has announced that the teaser will be released at 5 pm on December 29. They also released a new poster of the project which features Sharwanand, Ramesh Thilak and Sathish. According to the poster, Kanam will hit the screens next year. 

While Sharwanand shot to fame among Kollywood audience with the decade-old hit film Engeyum Eppodhum, Ritu Varma was last seen in Tamil in the anthology Putham Pudhu Kaalai (streaming on Amazon Prime Video). Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (streaming on Netflix), which had her paired opposite Dulquer Salmaan, was her last theatrical release in Kollywood. 

Dhruva Natchathiram, the long-pending Gautham Menon-directorial, starring Vikram in the lead, is another Tamil movie she has in her kitty.
