Sivakarthikeyan is on a roll with successive hits under his belt. Last seen on screen in Velaikkaran as blue-collared worker in a fight against food adulteration, the star is currently gearing up for his next release Seema Raja, directed by the Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan fame Ponram.
The film is an action-comedy-drama that has Siva in the title role with Samantha Akkineni playing the female lead.
Scheduled for release on September 13, the film has completed its censor formalities and has been given clean U certificate from the censor board.
Incidentally, the director’s two earlier releases starred Siva in the lead role. In Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam, Siva has paired opposite Sri Divya and in Rajiini Murugan it was with Keerthy Suresh. With Seema Raja, he will be seen sharing the screen space with Samantha for the first time.
The star cast also features Napoleon, Simran, Soori, Yogi Babu, Manobala, Sathish, and Abubakkar. The film is bankrolled by RD Raja under his banner 24 AM Studios. The technical crew of this film includes D Imman as the music composer, Balasubramaniem as the cinematographer and Vivek Harshan as the editor.
There have been reports of Seema Raja being a period flick but the film’s director had denied it adding that it would be on the lines of his previous ventures. Well, it is now certain that Seema Raja will be a comedy entertainer, which happens to be Siva and Ponram’s forte.
Meanwhile, Siva has signed a new film with director Rajesh, best known for films such as SMS and Boss Engira Bhaskaran. In May, the yet-untitled Siva-Rajesh film, currently dubbed as SK 13, was launched in a ceremony in Chennai.
Also starring comedian Sathish in a crucial role, the film is being bankrolled by Studio Green. The project went on the floors last month and earlier this week Nayanthara joined its sets. This would be the second time Siva and Nayanthara will be seen sharing screen space after last year's Velaikkaran.
