Udhayanidhi Stalin has signed up his next with director Seenu Ramasamy, and the groundwork for this project has been going on for some time now.

The National Award-winning director has been busy roping in stars, and the latest we hear is that Tammannah will join the star cast. This is the first time she will be seen sharing the screen space with Udhayanidhi Stalin. Reports are that she is impressed with the storyline, and has given her go ahead. However, the team is yet to work out the dates. Once this is done, the project would start rolling. It may be mentioned here that Tammannah had worked with director Seenu Ramasamy earlier in Dharma Durai, which had Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role.

Speaking about the film to Times of India, the director said, “It is a romance-based film that talks about humanism. The story is set in Chozhavanthan near Madurai. Tamannaah plays the role of a bank employee in the village. Several upcoming artistes will be part of the supporting cast. Yuvan Shankar will score the music while Vairamuthu will pen the lyrics.”

Titled as Kanne Kalaimaane, the director explained that the title was a tribute to his mentor and guru, the late director Balu Mahendra. It is worth mentioning that the popular number Kanne Kalaimaane from Balu Mahendra’s film Moondram Pirai also happened to be the last lyrics penned by poet Kannadasan.

The shooting of this film is expected to commence from January 2018.  Udhayanidhi Stalin's next will be Nimir, which is the Tamil remake of the Malayalam blockbuster Maheshinte Prathikaaram, which is being directed by Priyadarshan. The shoot was recently wrapped up after 40 days of continuous filming in Tenkasi and is currently in post-production. The film is slated for release on January 26, 2018. The film stars Udhayanidhi Stalin and Namitha Pramod. Namitha is making her Tamil debut with this movie. She is reprising the female lead role played by Aparna Balamurali in the original.
