On a roll
Sanjana Singh is multitasking. ‘‘I’ve just done an item number with Rajpal Yadav and it was an amazing experience,’’ she gushes. It was for the Hindi film, Thoda Lutf Thoda Ishq. Among her Tamil films, she rates her characters in her debut Renigunta and in Meaghamann as two of her favourites. ‘‘Both the directors— Panneerselvam and Magizh Thirumeni—trusted me with roles that have substance,’’ the actress acknowledges.
‘‘It would take him to the next level,’’ says debut director Jagadish about Udhayanidhi Stalin’s performance in Nanbaenda (released Thursday). He adds, ‘‘His dancing is being appreciated and he gets to do some fights too.’’ Nayanthara plays his romantic interest. The director calls his romantic-comic-thriller a clean family entertainer.
It’s testing time for Vijaykanth’s younger son, Shanmuga Pandian, for his debut film, Sagaptham, a home production, has just hit theatres (Thursday). A romantic action thriller, it is directed by debutant Surendran. Former beauty queens Neha Hinge and Shubra Ayyappa play the female leads. With Vijaykanth in a cameo, Kecha Khamphakdee, a stunt choreographer who has worked in several international films, plays the antagonist.
