 ‘Murungaikai Chips’ - First Look poster
Veteran director K Bhagyaraj is well known for incorporating 'Murungakkai' (en: Moringa or Drumstick) and its benefits in his films, say 'Munthanai Mudichu'. Now his son Shanthanu follows the lead and titled his next film 'Murungaikai Chips' for current generation.

Shanthanu, who kept himself busy during the lockdown by releasing shortfilms, starring in GVM video song and Fathers day Interview on his YouTube channel, announced his next film.

The first look poster of the film ‘Murungaikai Chips’ starring Santhanu Bhagyaraj directed by Sreedar is released today (July 8th), as it marks the producer Libra Productions' Ravinder Chandrasekhar birthday. Athulya plays the female lead in the film. K. Baghyaraj has also been roped in to play a pivotal role.

This romantic-comedy also stars Yogi Babu, Manobala, Anandraj, Mayilsamy, Rajendran, Bigg Boss 3 fame Reshma Pasupaleti and Madhumitha. Dharan Kumar is composing music for this film. Dharan made his debut as a music director in Bhagyaraj's 'Parijatham'. He also worked with Shanthnu in 'Siddu +2'.

Director Srijar says "It's a fun-filled romantic comedy that's about a couple and custom and tradition-based issues they face when they're all set for their first night. Whether they are able to succeed forms the crux of the story. Shanthnu and Athulya Ravi play the couple and K Bhagyaraj sir will play Shanthnu's grandfather. We're trying to rope in a well known name to play the role of the grandmother. It will be a clean entertainer that will be suitable for everyone. We have completed the majority of the shooting before the lockdown commenced. Once we get the permission to shoot again, we'll wrap it up in two weeks time."

‘Murungaikai Chips’ is the second film for director Srijar, who earlier assisted Bharathiraja. Srijar debuted as a director in 'Eedal' released in 2016.

Shanthnu will be seen next in Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi starrer 'Master', which doesn't have any official release date yet. He is also acting in Sudha Kongara's portions in the Netflix anthology, has Chimbu Devan's 'Kasada Thapara', and 'Ravana Kottam' in the pipeline. The shooting of ‘Ravana Gotham’ will begin with the end of the coronavirus threat.
