The name Alphonse Puthren is synonymous to Premam as the director had made an entire generation of the young audience go crazy over his second film. Although the film was in Malayalam, it fetched a widespread fan base for him in Tamil Nadu also. Premam had given Kollywood, stars like Sai Pallavi, Madonna Sebastian, Anupama Parameswaran and of course the charming Nivin Pauly. Prior to this, he had his first film, a bilingual in Tamil and Malayalam, Neram which was also accepted by the audience big time.
After these two films, Puthren roped in Kalidas Jayaraman for a Tamil film. Kalidas was so excited to be featuring in Puthren’s film that he was quoted as saying, “I have signed Alphonse Putharen's Tamil film. It has an interesting storyline. I am a fan of Alphonse Chetan's films and feel lucky to be part of this one." But sadly so, we hear that this film is dropped. It would have been a good flick especially for Kalidas who is trying to get his mooring in Tamil.
We do not know the reasons for the film to have got shelved. But our sources tell us that the director is working on another fresh script. They say, “Alphonse Puthren is busy shaping up a fresh script in Tamil”. We are not sure if Kalidas would continue to feature in it. Stay tuned and we will keep you posted.
