Reports that Siva Karthikeyan’s upcoming film with director Rajesh has been titled Jithu Jilladi has been quashed by the director himself. The director has confirmed that the title for his film with Siva Karthikeyan has not been finalized yet and there is no truth in it being titled Jithu Jilladi. Interestingly, 'Jithu Jilladi' is a popular song from Vijay's Theri.
Siva Karthikeyan’s film with director Rajesh is being bankrolled by KE Gnanvel Raja under his banner Studio Green. Referred to as SK 13 for now, it is touted to be a rom-com that will have Nayanthara playing the female lead. M Rajesh, well known for directing romantic comedies, is wielding the megaphone for this venture. Sathish will be Siva’s sidekick in the film.
Siva Karthikeyan is riding high on success over his latest film release Seema Raja and is concentrating on his upcoming film with director Ravi Kumar of Netru Indru Naalai fame besides the M Rajesh directorial.
Yet to be titled, the Ravi Kumar directorial is being referred as SK 14. Touted to be a high budget film, it is being bankrolled by RD Raja under his banner 24 AM Studios. Rakul Preet Singh has been roped in to play his female lead in this project. The star cast also has Yogi Babu, Kothandam and Karunakaran playing the supporting roles.
The highlight of the film is that it will have music by the Oscar-winning music director AR Rahman. According to sources, he has come up with some impressive tunes already. Reportedly, one of the tunes composed by the musician impressed the star so much that he requested AR Rahman to sing the song himself.
Siva Karthikeyan had told the music director that he would be honored if the Oscar winner himself sang the song to which he readily obliged.
