We had reported recently that actor Vijayakanth’s younger son Shanmugapandiyan is all set to enter Kollywood as hero in an upcoming film. The actor-turned-politician had annoucned a few weeks back that SP (shorter version of the name) had taken ‘formal permission’ from his elder brother to make his foray into the world of films, taking after Vijayakanth.
SP’s debut film in Tamil would be the remake of the Tollywood super-hit film which starred Jr. NTR in the lead. Besides displaying his acting credentials, it is strongly rumoured that SP would also be indulging in more than one profession so as to showcase his deep understanding and knowledge of the film industry.
Like Vijaya T. Rahendhar did more than a couple of decades ago when he took on many avatars, SP would be taking care of the stunt choreography and dance choreography in his very first outing in Tamil films. Vijayakanth reportedly won the right to remake the film in Tamil beating several other competitors including some notable directors in Kollywood.
The film would be produced by Vijayakanth’s Captain Cine Creations. It is also mentioned that the curvaceous Kajal Aggarwal and the pretty Samantha have been signed up as SP’s heroines in the film. Both of them, who are established heroines in Kollywood and Tollywood, have reportedly been offered ‘huge sums’ to star opposite the debutant SP!
