Sivakarthikeyan after his brief (but important) cameo in his production venture Kanaa, directed by his friend Arunraja Kamaraj, was doing a film with director M Rajesh who considered as comedy specialist. The film recently got christened as Mr.Local. It is produced by Gnanavel Raja for his Studio Green productions.
Nayanthara plays the lady lead in this film which has the supporting cast in the form of Radhika Sarathkumar, Sathish and Yogi Babu. Nayanthara teams with Sivakarthikeyan for the second time after their last outing Velaikkaaran, directed by Mohan Raja.
Mr. Local was said to be the remake of Telugu film Nenu Local of Nani. But the crew denied it saying the only common factor between the two films is the term ‘Local’.
The film was majorly shot in Chennai, with the team travelling abroad just for a song shoot. The unit has wrapped up the shoot and is currently busy with the post-production work. We can expect the release of the film, perhaps, in the month of June.
The Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of the film have been bought by Sakthi Film Factory who recently 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. They have a good track record and are also lucky. Let us hope Sakthi Film Factory turns out Lucky for Local team too!
