Samuthirakani to direct Prabhas based on novel ‘Sivam’


Samuthirakani, the ‘Naadodigal’ directoe, is all set to introduce a handsome hero from tollywood into Tamil cinema. He is Prabhas, who has acted in many blockbusters including ‘Varsham’ (‘Mazhai’ in Tamil) and the Tollywood remake of Ajith starrer ‘Billa’.

The filmmaker, who is fresh from the success of his maiden Telugu venture ‘Sambho Shiva Sambho’ (remake of ‘Nadodigal), will direct Sasikumar again for a yet-to-be-titled film, which will go on floors very soon.

After that, I will be making a bilingual, which will have Prabhas in the lead role. The film will be based on popular writer Indira Soundararajan’s novel ‘Sivam’. I am currently penning the screenplay and dialogues,” the director informs.

On ‘Sambho Siva Sambho’, he says, “working in Tollywood was a wonderful experience. I am happy that the film won huge appreciation. Top actors like Ravi Teja and Allari Naresh acted in the movie, with Roja doing a special role.”
