When it was announced that two of Kollywood’s popular comedians – Santhanam and Vivekh – are teaming up for multi-starrer comedy, Sakka Podu Podu Raja, a lot of people wondered how the two will get along considering they’re rivals. However, Santhanam doesn’t feel so and is in fact happy to collaborate with the veteran comedian whom he has admired from a very young age. 

“Right from my school days, I have been a big fan of Vivekh sir. After becoming an actor, I even have referred to him many times in my movies! I even had this dialogue, ‘Aayiram Vivekh vandha kooda, ungalai ellaam thiruttha mudiyadhu! (You people are incorrigible even if thousands Vivekhs come).”

“When my producer VTV Ganesh, director Sethuraman and I discussed the script and the comedy track, we wanted someone who would elevate and justify the film’s climax. I could not think of any other actor other than Vivekh sir for that role. Though, initially, we had apprehension, I approached him and he was very supportive and gladly came on board. We discussed all the scenes beforehand,” Santhanam told Deccan Chronicle. 

The project, which has already gone on the floors, also stars Sampath, Robo Shankar and Vaibhavi Shandilya in the lead. A minor portion of the film will also be shot in the US early next year.
