‘Pei Mama will be a thorough entertainer’

Pei Mama can be called as mini Kanchana. It is thoroughly engaging and entertaining, says filmmaker Sakhi Chidambaram.

Speaking at the audio launch of his movie Pei Mama starring Yogi Babu in the lead, Sakhi Chidambaram, said, ‘It was a story written before Covid outbreak. But strangely it fits well for present day and problems we see due to virus outbreak’.

On his part, Yogi Babu, said that Pei Mama was originally written for Vadivelu and he hesitated to fill in the shoes of the legend but later when the director narrated the script he loved it and acted with a lot of confidence.

He added, ‘Though it is a lead role, I still love to do comical roles and entertain people.’

Yogi Babu denied reports that he is charging exorbitant rates and collects his payments in advance.
