‘Annadurai’ is produced by ‘Vijay Antony Film Corporation’ and Radhikaa Sarathkumar’s ‘R Studios’.
“I am excited as well as nervous. This feel of mixed emotions is what I had waited for so many years. I have not left any stone unturned in my tenure of learning the art of filmmaking. I am proud to do this script as my first movie. I had worked with different directors to learn this art. I learnt ‘Class’ from Vasantha Balan sir, ‘Impactful commercialism’ from Suseendran sir, ‘Humour’ from Boopathy Pandian sir and ‘How to deliver the product in time’ from Ezhil sir. I am thankful to each and every director I worked with and learnt a lot from. For ‘Annadurai,’ I could not think of anyone else than Vijay Antony sir for this script. His way of being subtle yet powerful is a characteristic not many actors possess. His dedication and involvement for ‘Annadurai’ was simply outstanding. Not just as a lead actor and music director, even as an editor he has done a fabulous job,” said Srinivasan in a statement.
Diana Champika and Mahima play the female leads in the movie, which also features Radha Ravi, Kaali Venkat, Nalinikanth, Jwell Mary and Rindhu Ravi in important supporting roles.
