The film has been hogging the limelight as it is being directed by Ike, the grandson of Nadigavel M. R. Radha and a former associate of director Priyadarshan. Ike was also a part of the direction team for Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam and its sequel.
The film, which has Sri Divya as its female lead, will also feature Soori,‘Datuk’ Radha Ravi and Radhika Sarathkumar in crucial roles. Thambi Ramaiah, Kovai Sarala, ‘Naan Kadavul’ Rajendran, Mayilsamy, Devadarshini and Ilavarasu too form part of the cast.
Atlee, who’s currently shooting his next film with Vijay adds, “I am delighted that Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thorae is my first production as it’s a wholesome family entertainer. I am proud to introduce Ike as a director in this film, and can promise that he is going to go a long way in our industry.”
“Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thorae is a wholesome family entertainer in the horror-comedy genre, which will be loved by all sets of audiences. I feel proud to be associated with Atlee’s A for Apple and Fox Star Studios in my very first film. Though this is the season of horror-comedy, I am quite confident that our SBKT will stand out from other such films. For the first time Jiiva and Sridivya have paired up for a Tamil film and I am sure that audiences will love their onscreen chemistry” says director Ike.
