Suseenthiran, who was the first director to make sports-based movies in Tamil cinema, has begun work on his next sports film, Champion.
Sources close to the director say that the film went on floors today.
“Actor and producer GK Reddy officially launched the film by switching on the camera for the first shot. The entire cast and crew was present on the occasion. The film will feature a newcomers Roshan and Mrinalini as the lead.”
The film will also feature GK Reddy, Anjathey fame Naren, Jayaprakash, RK Suresh and Harish Uthaman. Arrol Corelli will score the music for this film and Sujith Sarang will be the cinematographer.
“Indian Football Champion Raman Vijayan has been roped in by the team to give suggestions,” the source adds.
It may be recalled that Suseenthiran’s first film, Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu, was based on the sport of Kabadi. The film was based on a real life incident and went on to emerge a superhit. After making a couple of more movies, Suseenthiran then made Jeeva, a film which was on the sport of cricket.
Now, the filmmaker has begun his third sports film which has been titled Champion. Sources close to the unit say that the film is based on the sport of football.
