Actor-director-producer S.A. Chandrasekar (actor Vijay’s father) is one busybee who never rests on his laurels. Now in the industry for close to three decades, the ageing director-producer never gives a break to his creative thoughts and keeps himself busy with one film or the other. Though his last couple of movies as director and producer didn’t do well, he has already moved ahead and launched his next film titled Sattapadi Kutram

After his meeting with AIADMK supremo J. Jayalalithaa that created waves in the murky political waters of the State, it was thought that SAC would plunge into active politics sooner than later. SAC, however, has roped in  Sathyaraj and Seeman as the lead actors along with Vikranth and Harish (of ‘Sindhu Samaveli’ fame) in his next venture and is moving ahead rapidly. 

SAC, who made ‘revolutionary’ films like ‘Sattam Oru Iruttarai’, ‘Sigappu Malli’ and ‘Naan Sigappu Manithan’ in the early and mid-eighties which had thought-provoking dialogues, on those lines upcoming ‘Sattapadi Kutram’ will be designed sesigned.  SAC had intially signed up for  Diyana, of  ‘Aval Peyar Thamizharasi’ and ‘Virundhaali’ fame, as the heroine of the film.  But at the very last moment, SAC had dropped off  Diyana citing  that her face looked ‘too homely’ whereas he needed a ‘face’ which could hold a gun for the role in the film, but has promised to consider casting her in his next film. Seeman is said to have agreed to star in the film with the pre-condition that he would be writing his own dialogues for his character in the film.
