Mumbai, Dec 11 (IANS) Veteran actors of the Tamil industry, including Bhagyaraj, Chinni Jayanth, Ambika, Manobala, Pandayarajan, Kavithalaya Krishnan, Amjad, Amruta Srinivasan, and Jaya Chandra will feature together in a comedy film.

The yet-to-be-titled movie is being directed by Karthik Kumar, who is also a popular stand-up comedian and actor.

The first leg of shooting for the film is just about over and the second is expected to roll in January in Chennai.

Siddarth Anand Kumar, VP, films and television, Saregama, said: “The appreciation we received from KD from all around is very heartening and we are going full steam ahead with our next Tamil production. Good stories backed with great talent has always been the calling card of ours at Yoodlee. We are excited to bring such acting stalwarts of Tamil cinema in one film, and to back our director Karthik’s vision.”
