February 23, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Unlike his previous ones, his upcoming film ‘Vanthaan Vendran’ will be a full-fledged action thriller set in backdrops of Mumbai. The film features Jeeva in lead role and is produced by Srinivasan of Vasan Visual Venture. It’s noteworthy that the producer had earlier churned out Aarya’s ‘Naan Kadavul’ and yet-to-release ‘Boss Engira Bhaskaran’.
With ‘Jayam Kondan’ and ‘Kanden Kadhalai’ turning to be successful at the box office, director Kannan has become the blue-eyed-boy of Kollywood producers. Apparently, the filmmaker has decided to deflect from his style and opts for another genre in his next flick.
According to sources, Kannan has been in talks with a leading actress to star opposite Jeeva as the female lead. The only technician to have been confirmed for this project is cinematographer P.G. Muthaiah, who previously cranked camera for ‘Kanden Kadhalai’ –the remake of Hindi blockbuster ‘Jab We Met’.
