A1 is a romantic entertainer set in North Madras and reportedly it will not just be a full-on comedy film. While Santhanam plays a guy from North Madras, Tara Alisha Berry will play a girl from an agraharam. A report in a leading media states that Santhanam will be called Saravanan in this film. Santhosh Narayanan is composing the music for this flick, with cinematography done by Gopi Jagadeeswaran and editing by Leo John Paul.

Santhanam’s last release as hero was Dhilluku Dhuddu 2, which had hit the screens earlier this year, in February. The film did exceedingly well at the Box Office and his acting chops were lauded a lot. The actor also has Dagaalty, which will be directed by Vijay Anand, an erstwhile associate of director Shankar.
