The shooting of Sivakarthikeyan’s Mr Local is in the final stages and it was reported recently that the unit is involved in the post production work. Nayanthara plays Sivakarthikeyan’s love interest in the film which also has Radhika Sarathkumar, Sathish and Yogi Babu in supporting roles. Mr Local is directed by comedy specialist M Rajesh. Hip Hop Thamizha scores music for the film which has Dinesh Krishna cranking the camera. Vivek Harshan edits this film.
Since the film is completed, business for the same has begun and recently the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights were bought by Sakthi Film Factory. Sakthi Film Factory was the ones who bought the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of Sarvam Thaala Mayam and R J Balaji’s LKG. They also bought Trichy and Tanjore theatrical rights of Viswasam.
Coming to overseas rights of the film, our source said, "The overseas rights have been sold to Malik Stream Corporation who on an earlier occasion had bought Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta."
Sivakarthikeyan is a bankable and saleable star and the business of his films are done pretty briskly. The trade has good regard for his movies and the fact that there is Nayanthara also in the film, adds up the value. In addition to that, M Rajesh is expected to give good content. All these factors have added up on the business of the film. Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara’s last outing Velaikkaran had also good reception and therefore one can expect good returns. The film is slated for a April 2019 release.
