Sasikumar in Virumandi’s film

Director Virumandi, who made Ka Pae Ranasingam, has roped in Sasikumar to play the lead in his next film. The untitled film will be a period drama set in the 70s.

The movie has music by Ghibran, cinematography by NK Ekambaram, editing by T Shivanandeeshwaran and lyrics by Vairamuthu.

Says Virumandi, ‘Like Ranasingam, this film will also be based on the life of real people. This one is more like a biography of a person who is responsible for cinema continuing to be one of our primary sources of entertainment, especially in rural areas. There have been many like the protagonist of this film who are the reason for why we celebrate cinema, but this one focuses on a person I’ve travelled with in my life.’
