One more member from CM’s family is all set to make her entry into cine field now.
Kanimozhi, the poetess-turned-politician daughter of Kalaignar and a sitting Rajya Sabha M.P., is said to be seriously considering the option of turning a film producer, sources close to her say.
Other than politics, members of Kalaignar’s big family have been regularly foraying into the various departments of the Tamil film industry. Kalaignar himself, who leads the way, is a successful lyrics and story-dialogue writer in films for over five decades. Kalaignar’s eldest son M.K. Muthu dabbled in acting when he was propped up in vain by the DMK as an alternative to the legendary MGR in the mid-seventies. Muthu’s son is now trying to make his mark in Kollywood as an actor as well as a qualified singer.
Deputy chief minister Stalin too has appeared in films; Stalin’s son Udhayanidhi owns the production house ‘Red Giant Movies’ and is also a successful distributor. Union Minister Azhagiri’s son Dayanidhi Azhagiri too has his own production house ‘Cloud Nine’.
Recently another son of Kalaignar M K Thamizharasu completed his first production ‘Vamsam’ with his own son Arulnidhi as the hero.
In the meantime, it is said that Kanimozhi is also too keen to make her mark in films as a producer. The cast and crew and other technicians of the film are being kept under the wraps by the producer for the time.
As usual keeping with the family reputation even Kanimozhi’s film would be a mega budget extravaganza they added.
