At a recent awards night in Chennai, Sivakarthikeyan marked his presence with his wife and daughter. The family collected a whole bunch of awards for Kanaa, and they were the cynosure of all eyes. When Aaradhana was on stage, she was asked about her favourite film of her dad’s. After a long pause, she replied Seemaraja. Siva immediately thanked his little daughter for picking the film as “more than half the audience didn’t take a liking to the film”. Siva’s instant wit and humour won over the crowd. He also added that as a producer, he would always look to have some relevant content for the society in all his ventures.
On the sidelines of the event, when we had a chat with Siva, he said that he had almost wrapped work on his next release, Mr Local, and that he would begin shooting for his next film with director Mithran soon. The film with Mithran would be released either in August or September. The star positively said that he would have two releases this year and three next year. The status of his sci-fi film with director Ravikumar remains uncertain though.
Siva would meanwhile be heading to his hometown to celebrate his birthday on Feb 17th.
