Filmmaker and younger daughter of superstar Rajinikanth, Soundarya Rajinikanth, has officially announced her second directorial venture. The film, titled Nilavukku Enmel Ennadi Kobam, a line taken from an evergreen hit song from the 1962 movie Policekaran Magal, will be produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu.
Earlier, speculations were rife that the film will be produced by Dhanush under Wunderbar Films banner, which will also be bankrolling Rajinikanth and Pa Ranjith’s second untitled venture. However, now it is clear that V Creations will produce Soundarya’s first non-animated feature film.
Soundarya seems to be keen on casting newcomers in her next directorial venture. She shared contact details on her Twitter handle, asking new talents to share their recent photographs and other details for a chance to be part of the project. “All those who are interested, pls do send us your details (sic) #NEEK #CastingCall,” tweeted Soundarya.
