I was delighted to find that Madhavan and Shruti Hassan have a joint project in the offing. Madhavan's previous project Evano Oruvan was an off beat attempt that portrayed the frustrations of a sincere middle class citizen. Though not a success in all dimensions, the film did win the hearts of the mainstream audience.
Shruti Rajalakshmi Hassan is a formally trained musician who is hoping to become an actress in Kollywood. She made a cameo appearance in Kamal's Hey Ram. So the next venture with Madhavan should be called her 'debut as a heroine'.
This joint venture is going to be directed by Nishikant Kamat and is tentatively named Endrendrum Punnagai. People surmise that it is going to be a romantic thriller and apparently Madhavan has to lose 6 Kgs to appear compatible with Shruti - and I know how hard it is to lose 6 pounds! Good luck Maddy.
