Siddharth was last seen in Kammara Sambhavam which marked his debut in the Malayalam film industry. He played Othenan Nambiar in it and shared the screen space with Dileep. Following positive reviews for his portrayal in the film, Siddharth has signed a new Tamil project, which was officially launched in Chennai on Monday.
To be produced by R Ravindran of Trident Arts, the film marks the first time collaboration of Siddharth and Catherine Tresa. The yet-untitled film, tipped to be a horror-comedy, will be directed by debutant Sai Sekhar. The project goes on the floors from July 13 and itâ€™ll be shot in Chennai and Pondicherry.
The film also stars Kabir Singh, Kali Venkat and Sathish in important roles. According to the director, the film features nearly 40-minutes of computer graphics and the pre-production work has been happening over the last few months. Apparently, the film also features another popular actor as one of the leads and this character will be a major surprise of the film when it releases.
Speaking about the film, its director has been quoted by the Cinema Express as stating, â€śIt'll be a commercial film that will be loved by people of all ages. I've studied and developed the lead characters for over a year. I felt that Siddharth and Catherine Tresa would be perfect for these roles. There's also another important character which we've kept as a suspense and that character's backstory will be really hard-hitting.â€ť
This will be the fourth production venture of Trident Arts, best known for their association with Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi starrer Vikram Vedha. The company had previously produced Devi and Sivalinga. Ravindran has also produced Prabhudevaâ€™s upcoming dance-based film Lakshmi.
Itâ€™s worth mentioning that he also has another project with Prabhudeva and director Vijay. Having completed shooting on his upcoming comedy Saithan Ka Bachcha, which also stars Raashi Khanna, Siddharth will look to complete this project in one stretch. Catherine, on the other hand, has a Telugu project with Ravi Teja.
