Prashanth and Pooja team up for the first time in a new film titled 'Thagappan Samy'. Namita plays yet another lead in the film.
Directed by Shivashanmughan, who's also scripted the story, the film is produced by Amudha Durairaj for Thirumalai Creations.
The supporting cast includes Mahadevan, Karunas, Vincent Ashokan, Alwa Vasu, Lakshmanan, Citizen Mani, Sivanarayanmurthy, Kartikeyan, Besant Ravi, Hemalata and Vijay Kanna, among others.
With shooting for the film is going on at a fast pace, a song was picturised on the lead pair at the Senji Fort. The song, composed by Srikkanth Deva, was choreographyed by Dinesh, and canning it in his camera was debutant J Sridhar who apprenticed under cinematographers Ashok Rajan K., Chas and Priyan. The lyrics for the song were penned by the director himself. Present on the sets were 80 dancers. Apart from them were 10 elephants and 20 horses.
Prashanth, unfortunately, has not had much success at the box office with his recent releases. Hopefully, this film should break the jinx.
