Vijayakanth to work with his son again
Shanmugapandian, son of veteran actor-turned- politician Vijayakanth, made his debut with the action flick Sagaptham, which released earlier this year.
The film turned out to be a major disaster at the box office despite Vijayakanth essaying a crucial role in it.
The father-son duo is all set to come together again for a historical film titled Tamizhan Endru Soll. As the title suggests, the film will be a tribute to the Tamil language.
Vijayakanth announced the film at an event conducted at the RKV Studio, Chennai.
It will be directed by debutant Arun Ponnambalam. Hip Hop Aadhi, who is fresh from the success of Thani Oruvan, has been roped in to compose the music.
