Directed by Pradeep Krishnamoorthy who has helmed the critically acclaimed film Saithan starring Vijay Antony, the shooting of Kapatadhaari has already been wrapped up and the post-production formalities are underway. Besides Sumanth, the neo-noir thriller features an ensemble star cast like Nasser, Nandita Swetha, Jayaprakash, Vennela Kishore, Suman Ranganath and Sampath.
Bankrolled by Lalitha Dhananjayan and presented by G Dhananjayan under Creative Entertainers and Distributors, the music of the film is composed by Simon K King and the camera is handled by Rasamathi. ‘Kapatadhaari’ is the official remake of Kannada superhit film ‘Kavaludaari’ starring Rishi and Anant Nag in lead roles.
While details regarding Sumanth’s new film are awaited, speculations are rife that the 45-year-old actor is reprising the lead role in the Telugu remake of Malayalam gangster-comedy Padayottam. The untitled project will reportedly be directed by Vinu Yagna and newbie Aima has been roped in as the leading lady. There is no official confirmation yet from the makers.
