Director VC Vadivudaiyan, who has earlier made movies like Saamida, Thambi Vetothi Sundaram and Sowkarpettai, is now ready for the release of his next movie - Pottu! This movie, produced by John Max under the Shalom Studios banner, also stars Ineya in the title role and actors Namitha, Sayaji Shinde, Thambi Ramaiah, Rajendran and Mansoor Ali Khan, in important roles. Amresh Ganesh handles the musical score while Elisa handles the editing and Enniyan J Harris is in charge of the cinematography.
A source close to the producers said, "Pottu has been completed for a long time now and was waiting for the right date to hit the screens. Now, Shalom Studios feel that March 8th would be a good time to release the movie." In a poster released today, the makers have revealed that Pottu will be hitting screens on the 8th of March. This poster shows Bharath dressed as a female. Pottu is a horror movie, following along the lines of this producer-director combo's earlier movie Sowkarpettai, which had Raai Laxmi and Srikanth in the lead.
Earlier reports stated that the Pottu team had erected huge sets at an altitude of over 2000 feet in the hilly regions of Kollimalai, where major portions of the movie were shot in tribal areas. There are also speculations that Namitha would be playing the role of an antagonist in Pottu. Director Vadivudaiyan has also started work on his next, the period film Veeramadevi, which would mark Sunny Leone's debut in Kollywood, in a lead role. She has earlier performed in an item number in Vadacurry.
