Following the success of Kanaa, in which she was seen playing a cricketer; Aishwarya Rajesh is all set to join hands with director Suseenthiran for a project tiled Magalir Ani. Rumored to be a heroine-centric film, an official announcement regarding the project is expected to be made soon.
It’s worth mentioning that Aishwarya and Suseenthiran are teaming up for the first time and if the industry grapevine is anything to go by, it could be another sports-based film. More information regarding the project is currently awaited.
Known for helming films such as Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu and Naan Mahan Alla Suseenthiran’s last directorial was Genius which bombed at the box-office. He currently has three projects in various stages of production.
Among the three projects, Champion could be his next release, a football-based drama set against the backdrop of players from a highly backward community. He has also finished shooting for a project titled Angelina, rumoured to deal with teenage pregnancy. Suseenthiran also has Sasikumar and Bharathiraja starrer Kennedy Club, a film based on a women’s Kabbadi crew.
Talking about Kennedy Club, Suseenthiran had told TNM: “It’ll be an emotional sports drama and will be devoid of the clichés associated with films in this genre. We are planning to rope in real Kabbadi players to shoot the match sequences as we want everything to look very authentic. We will finish the combination scenes of the artists in the first schedule and then rope in Kabbadi players to shoot the match sequences. We are on the lookout for a Bollywood actor to play the antagonist.”
D Imman has been roped in to compose music while Gurudev will crank the camera.
Aishwarya's last release Kanaa hit the silver screens on December 21st last year to positive reviews. It is a sport drama which is about women’s cricket that was well received by the movie buffs. Bankrolled by actor Siva Karthikeyan and helmed by Arunraja Kamaraj, the makers have now decided to dub it in Chinese and release in China following its success.
