Santhanam debuts in Mollywood

Ace comedian Santhanam is widening his horizons. The comedian, who had till now been starring only in Tamil films, is all set to make his debut in Malayalam films in a film which is being directed by debutant director Sarath A. Haridaasan.

Vadivelu’s continued absence from the scene for close to three years and Vivek’s out-of-form movies has helped Santhanam to hold on to the ‘No.1’ comedian in Tamil films unchallenged. Santhanam’s debut Malayalam film would be Salala Mobiles Starring Dulquer Salmaan and Nazriya Nazim in lead roles. Gopi Sundar has scored the film’s release. The makers are planning to release the film in theatres on 23rd January.

Santhanam plays a Tamil whose name is Azhagarsamy who works as a mobile aps developer. Talking about his debut film as a director, Sharath says “When I conceived the script, I decided that Santhanam would fit the character appropriately. He would never have performed such a role in his entire career in Tamil films. We waited for a long time for his call-sheet but are now feeling the value of the wait!”
